MODESTO, Calif., Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The journey to success is different for everyone—whether it's feeling less stress, getting that promotion, losing a couple of pounds, or just getting the kids to school on time—but maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the common denominator that fuels success.. To share how they keep balance while juggling their careers and parenthood, Molly Sims and Harley Pasternak have teamed up with California Almonds, offering easy tips, recipes, snacking inspirations and sample workout routines, found here.
As a supermodel, actress, author of "The Everyday Supermodel" (Dey Street Books, 2015), current contributor of "The View" on ABC and busy mom, Sims knows first-hand how to balance life, work and family while remaining focused on staying fit and healthy. "Since I'm always on the go, it can be easy to get off track and lose motivation when feeling short on time, like during the holiday season," says Sims. "I always try to fit in quick workouts I can do at home with my kids, and keep smart snacks like almonds in my purse to tide me over until mealtime."
Whether preparing celebrity clients for an upcoming film role, a world tour or simply wanting to get in shape, Pasternak has personally trained and motivated many celebrities during important times in their careers. Also, as a busy dad, he makes fitness and nutrition a personal priority and recommends efficient and high-intensity workouts when limited on time. When it comes to smart snacking on-the-go, Pasternak suggests being prepared. "I always carry a small bag of almonds with me, especially when I travel. Almonds are a great snack paired with fruit, like an apple or pear," says Pasternak. "A handful of almonds helps fight my hunger in between meals and is a convenient source of protein, fiber and good, monounsaturated fats."1 In fact, one ounce of almonds has a pretty powerful nutrient package, with 4 grams of filling fiber, 6 grams of energy-giving protein and important vitamins and minerals such as (7.3 mg), magnesium (77 mg) and potassium (200 mg), making them an ideal snack for an active lifestyle.
Sims and Pasternak's tips to maintain health and wellness during busy times include:
- Time-saving and efficient workout routines
- Recipe recommendations for easy and nutritious on-the-go snacking
- Motivational tips to stay happy and healthy during the most chaotic times of the year, including the holiday season
Sims' and Pasternak's tips for keeping balance and overcoming everyday barriers can help fuel any journey toward success and are applicable to everyone, regardless of fitness level, time restraints or access to a gym.
