Why is “Healthy Living” important to you?

Ever since I was young, I have always been committed to eating healthy. One of my first role models was Madonna and her dedication to fitness inspired me when I was 12 years old. I find that when I stick to a healthy eating plan and regular exercise, I feel better and have more energy. While I do allow myself cheat days, I am always sure to run an extra mile or two so I can have that slice of pizza or piece of cake.

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

The two that first come to mind are my two friends here in Tampa, Liz Kieffer and Stephanie Sanchez May. These two lovely ladies, who happen to be sisters-in-law, are incredibly dedicated to physical fitness and healthy eating. They both inspire me on a daily basis.

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

Grilled chicken and steamed broccoli. I always have both on hand.

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

Replace sugary drinks with healthy alternatives such as fruit infused water and Cascade Ice. My kids love adding fresh fruit to their water such as orange and lemon slices. Always be sure to have healthy snacks on hand such as fruit, veggies, celery sticks with peanut butter, etc. Swap TV time for group walks or bike rides.

In addition to eating right, do you have any other tips to share on overall wellness (i.e. sleep, relaxation techniques, fitness routines)?

Sleep and hydration are essential. You must maintain your daily water intake and sleep is vital for health and wellness.

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

I never eat white bread and only have fried food once in a blue moon.

What is your favorite Cascade Ice flavor and why?

I love Coconut. It reminds me of a tropical drink and I enjoy sipping on it while trying to stay cool from the Florida heat.

Tracy is full of great tips so be sure to check out her blog and follow her on  FacebookTwitter, and Instagram!
