Simple Ways to Stay on Track with your Health Goals During the Holidays

by Cascade Ice on November 18, 2019

The holiday season is the easiest time to fall out of our healthy routines. After all, it’s tempting to overindulge in all the wonderful food, and become sedentary when temperatures drop. Here are a few tips that will help you enjoy all of the best parts of the holidays without putting your health goals on the back burner until the new year. 

Remember your motivation

What made you embark on a healthy living journey in the first place? It’s helpful to remind yourself daily of why you make these choices, whether it’s a small goal such as taking a daily walk, or a bigger goal like living a longer life. Try to remember the day you set your goal and how you felt, and what your hopes were. Sometimes our brains need to look back in order to keep moving forward! 

Don’t let temporary indulgences turn into derailment 

Falling off the wagon happens to everyone, especially during the holidays. Just because you enjoyed some treats or a break in activity doesn’t mean you should beat yourself up over it. Instead, channel your energy into getting back to it when you can!

Mix it up!

Maybe you’re tired of the healthy lunch you’ve been packing for the last several months or you’re getting bored with your typical exercise routine. Try mixing things up with a new recipe for a healthy drink from Cascade Ice Water, a health-conscious indulgence, or a new group exercise class. You’ll be surprised at how a small difference can make a big change for you mentally.

The Perfect Holiday Drink Recipes for Thanksgiving

by Cascade Ice on November 14, 2013

With Thanksgiving around the corner, Cascade Ice has prepared some delicious, low-calorie holiday drink recipes you’re sure to enjoy. Trade standard cocktails and sugary sodas for Cascade Ice’s delectable Cranberry Kiss Cocktail, Apple Cinnamon Sparkler and Black Raspberry Punch this Thanksgiving.

Cranberry Kiss Cocktail

Serve up a Cranberry Kiss Cocktail to enjoy while appetizers are served. To mix, use 3oz of Cascade Ice Cranberry Pomegranate, 2oz of vodka and the juice of a lime. Stir the contents in your shaker with a handful of ice and garnish with skewer of cranberries.

Apple Cinnamon Sparkler

Instead of serving soda with your Thanksgiving dinner, try our Apple Cinnamon Sparkler. Simply mix 4oz of Cascade Ice McIntosh Apple and 2oz of apple juice in a glass with ice. Add a green apple wedge and a cinnamon stick to complete the drink.

Black Raspberry Punch

To try it, mix 4oz of Cascade Ice Black Raspberry, 1oz of club soda and mix in some fresh black raspberries and lime slices. Serve over ice and enjoy!
