This past year, Bumble Bee Foods partnered up with Mardy Fish, American Tennis Player, and Chef Scott Leibfried to create a series of webisodes for BeeWell for Life, their wellness community. The BeeWell for Life Webisode Series consists of 13 episodes and follows Mardy and Chef Scott on various topics such as living a healthier life, how diet and fitness play a part in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and of course, recipes from Chef Scott that become a part of Mardy’s diet.
With 2013 just a mere three days away, I know that a major New Year’s Resolution for a good chunk of the American population is to be healthier in the new year. Whether your New Year’s goal is to eat healthier or exercise more often (or perhaps both), there’s no doubt that a healthy lifestyle takes dedication. When it comes to food, I’m sure that a little creativity and plenty of recipe options are helpful in avoiding food boredom – that would be when you grow tired of eating the same food over and over.
I invite you to view a few of the BeeWell for Life webisodes to get some fresh ideas for the new year. I’ve chosen three to share with you here, but you can see all the episodes on the Bumble Bee Foods YouTube Channel.
I like how Chef Scott shows Mardy how to make some simple appetizers for a Valentine’s Day meal. I think these work well for any occasion, or even as a light lunch. I know I would definitely eat the crostinis for lunch while working from home!
I’m a fan of easy meals that don’t require a ton of ingredients and I can put together relatively fast. For lunch, this is especially important because I have a home office and a two-year-old for company; fast meals are a must! I think both of the recipes that Chef Scott shows Mardy in this episode would be great to add to my weekly lunch menu!
Shopping for fresh produce is something I still sometimes struggle with, depending on the fruit or vegetable. I like the tips that Chef Scott gives in this episode and think they’re also great for kids to start learning how to choose their own produce!
What helps you in maintaining a healthy diet?
