Kickin’ It With Lifestyle Blogger Courtney Solstad

by Cascade Ice on August 22, 2013

We are “Kickin’ It” with lifestyle blogger Courtney Solstad this week. Courtney’s My Crazy Savings blog shares tips on how to save money and find the best deal on products. Keep reading to hear what Courtney has to say about healthy living!

Why is “Healthy Living” important to you?

I want to make memories and I want to live to see my babies have babies. Staying healthy and fit gives me the opportunity to make these memories!

Who are your “Healthy Living” role models and why?

Fitness trainer Chris Powell is my healthy living role model. I love how he teaches and empowers people to eat right and exercise… no pills, shakes, etc!

What is your go-to healthy meal when you are short on time?

My go-to easy meal is a spinach and egg omelet. I top it with Ms. Dash Chipotle seasoning… YUMMY!

Do you have any tips for families who want to make some healthy lifestyle changes?

Stop eating out! Even if you order a salad, it’s loaded with hidden fats and tons of sodium. I also believe less is more. The fewer ingredients you use, the better. Raw veggies are more healthy than cooked vegetables! And, stop using boxed items because fresh is best!

Are there any foods that you consider to be off-limits completely?

No, I think you can enjoy anything in moderation!

In addition to eating right, do you have any other tips to share on overall wellness?

Your calorie burn has to exceed your caloric intake to lose weight. So get active. Challenge yourself to push a little harder each time you exercise. Exercise a certain muscle group every week and be consistent with your exercise. Take time for YOU, you deserve it!

What is your favorite Cascade Ice flavor and why?

Organic Mixed Berry Cascade Ice is my favorite! It has a light berry flavor that adds interest to drinking water. And it’s calorie-free!
