1) Nutrition – Lunch in a SNAP!

I grew up eating a delicious lunch that my mom called Tuna Snaps a.k.a Tuna Melts. It still remains one of my most favorite delicious and nutritious lunches!

Here’s my yummy recipe…

1 can water packed flaked white tuna, drained
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped pepper (any color)
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp Italian dressing
1 tbsp pepper
1/2 cup shredded or sliced reduced – fat mozzarella cheese
2 whole wheat English Muffins, Rye or Pumpernickel bagels

Thats one rep

Tips: Keep your neck inline with your spine at all times, keep core engaged
Start with 5-6 reps – Increase as necessary

3) Wellness – Drink to stay healthy!

In times of stress, harsh environments, seasons, or whenever the body is in need of reinforcement, Echinacea Tea can be used to supply the boost required to maintain the body’s resistance to infection, to mend injured tissue, and to stimulate healthy body functioning.

teaI SWEAR by this stuff to keep my immune system strong and incorporate it in my lifestyle of exercising and eating right to stay healthy.

My favorite brand available at Noah’s: Organic Echinacea Tea by Traditional Medicinals Teas
