Feeling Overwhelmed

5 TIPS TO MAKE TIME FOR SELF-CARE

Ever feel like the days just get away from you, and you don’t have time to do the things you need to do, much less want to do? Often wish you could just spend your evenings or weekends on your personal goals, practicing self-care or just relaxing? There are many ways you can take control of your time and take better care of yourself. Sometimes it’s a question of prioritizing what you want to do - and outsourcing the rest. 6

Prioritize health and exercise. You try your best to exercise, so why not give yourself the most help you can to meet your wellness goals, and a reward when you achieve them? Hiring a personal trainer, signing up for a class or joining a fit community that will inspire you to keep up your fitness level is an investment in yourself that will pay dividends in your future, and make you feel great right now. Whether it’s Zumba, spin class, yoga or a virtual fitness

community, doing activities that help you build strength, flexibility and fitness level is worth the cost. Then be sure to treat yourself with a massage, sauna or spa visit - whatever helps you relax and feel good. Join Project Fit and stay motivated with like-minded women on a mission to live a happy, healthy life. Make friends that will keep you motivated, share meal plans, recipes and so much more!

03 Get Help With Pet Care

Get help with pet care. Unless you have kids old enough to take care of Fido, or you enjoy taking him for his walks, it’s easy to find pet care services, or even a reliable neighborhood teenager, to help walk the dog or check on the cat, particularly if you work long hours or travel for work. Doggy day care services, boarding and grooming experts also help lift some of the burden of caring for your furry friends.

Outsource House Cleaning Outsource house cleaning. While we all wish we had beautifully organized, clean homes, it’s almost impossible to do everything we’d like to keep our houses in great shape. Merry Maids offers a variety of cleaning services that allow you to choose which tasks or rooms you most need help with. Merry Maids home cleaning services are available weekly, every other week, monthly or one-time, so you can pick the service that best suits your lifestyle. On every visit, the team from your local Merry Maids franchise dusts, vacuums, washes and sanitizes each room. Imagine the hours of reclaimed time and peace of mind you’ll have, knowing you’re coming home to a beautifully clean home every night. 8

TAKE A BREAK

05 Take a time-out. When you are able, plan your next vacation for a location that will be fun and relaxing. If a long vacation is not in the cards, plan a mini-break, even just for a weekend, to get away from the daily routine and let you focus on yourself, your significant other or your family. Something as simple as spending a night in a local hotel - with as many amenities as you can enjoy - will leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated. You’ve earned it.

The next time you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed, choose to outsource those tasks that can take over your life, and give yourself the best gift - the gift of time.

Haylie Duff Shares Best Tips for Quick & Healthy Meals 18

BPT - Every parent knows it can be a struggle to prepare a nutritious meal that the whole family will enjoy. Finding time to spend around the table can be challenging, but not impossible. Actress, chef and mother of two, Haylie Duff, has a few expert tips and tricks for crafting nutritious meals on a time crunch.

1. Plan a meal-prep day each week. Preparing meals ahead of time to pull from the fridge or freezer and pop into the oven will help save time and reduce stress. Setting aside a couple of hours once a week to plan and prepare meals can go a long way toward making the week more relaxed. Plus, planning ahead means more time around the table with loved ones during mealtime.

2. Use pre-made ingredients to reduce prep time. Keeping the fridge stocked with pre-made ingredients is a simple time saver. Adding ingredients such as pre-cut vegetables or Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs to on-the-go snacks or family meals is an easy way to boost the nutrition of a recipe without all of the prep work.


3. Stock up on quality, versatile ingredients. It is so important to keep little tummies full with top quality ingredients such as Eggland’s Best eggs, which are packed with superior nutrition compared to ordinary eggs. EB eggs contain more than double the vitamin B12 compared to ordinary eggs, which helps transform food to energy to keep the entire family energized throughout the day. They also contain six times more vitamin D, 25 percent less saturated fat, more than double the omega-3s and 10 times more vitamin E, which is why they are the only eggs I use for my family.

4. Add slow-cooker recipes to your weekly routine. On busier days, let a slow-cooker do all the work. You can make tasty recipes, such as vegetable beef stew, a quiche or a healthy pasta dish. Simply put the ingredients in the slow cooker and fire it up. In the meantime, you’ll have more time to spend playing with the kids or helping them with homework.

Eggland’s Best is a proud national supporter of the American Heart Association’s Healthy for Good movement and is encouraging consumers to try out these three recipes created by the American Heart Association and Eggland’s Best: Buffalo Deviled Egg Bites, a Spinach Bake and Cheddar & Bacon Deviled Eggs (shown below). Eggland’s Best is also teaming up with Sur La Table to create a better-for-you cooking series to help educate families on the benefits of spending family time around the table enjoying nutritious meals.

CHEDDAR & BACON DEVILED EGGS Prep Time: 20 min Cook Time: 10 min Yield: 12

INGREDIENTS:

6 Eggland’s Best Hard Cooked Eggs 2 slices bacon 1/4 cup cheddar cheese 3 tablespoons mayo 1/2 teaspoon chives 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon pepper

PREPARATION:

Place eggs in a saucepan and cover them with cold water 1-inch above top of eggs. Over medium-high heat, bring water to the boiling point then set the saucepan off heat. Cover and let stand 20 to 25 minutes. Immerse cooked eggs in cold water until they are not hot to the touch. Peel eggs and cut them in half lengthwise. Meanwhile, in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon, turning often until bacon is crisp. Transfer bacon to a paper towel to drain. Finely crumble once cooled. Remove yolks from eggs and place in a medium bowl. Mash yolks then stir in cheese, mayo, vinegar, chives, salt, and pepper. Stir all but 2 tablespoons of bacon into yolk mixture. Spoon the yolk mixture into the egg whites in equal portions. Garnish each egg half with a pinch of the reserved bacon.

Create a Homemade Harvest with Mouthwatering Fall & Winter Sandwiches Enjoy a delicious sandwich with your favorite fall & winter flavors. (NU) - As cooler temperatures move in, sidewalks are painted orange with freshly falLen foliage, cozy sweaters are taken out of storage and mouths begin to water for hearty dishes packed with fall-friendly ingredients. There’s much more than pumpkin to freshen up your food: Make the most out of your fresh farmer’s market picks and create seasonal sandwiches with these simple add-ins that blend all of your favorite fall & winter flavors. 24

ModernFitMagazine.com


Butter Up: Pumpkin may be the star of autumn, but butternut squash is quick on its heels. Easy to prepare and packed with vitamins A and C, butternut squash adds a hearty sweetness to any dish. Give your sandwiches a seasonal makeover by creating custom spreads and sauces blended with butternut squash. Or use grilled squash on your next manchego and balsamiconion grilled cheese. Try adding tangy goat cheese and a squash spread on your favorite panini, this quick addition is sure to give any sandwich an extra burst of flavor.


Gobble Up Extra Protein: When the leaves start to fall, turkey takes center stage as the go-to protein for sandwiches, snacks and, of course, Thanksgiving dinner. But why wait for leftovers to enjoy a classic turkey sandwich? Lean turkey options help elevate sandwiches while still packing a nutritional punch. “Look for turkey products that are lower in sodium and fat without sacrificing the amount of protein you get in each serving,” says registered dietitian and cookbook author Jessica Fishman Levinson MS, RDN CDN. “A great option is Simply Delicious Slow Roasted Turkey Breast from Land O’Frost, which offers 8 grams of protein for only 50 calories per serving.” Simply Deliciousis certified as heart-healthy by the American Heart Association and contains no artificial flavors, byproducts or added hormones.


Apple a Day: Apple picking is a favorite fall past time, but what do you do with all those freshly picked apples after the pie is made? Use everyone’s favorite seasonal fruit to brighten up a warm grilled panini or gourmet grilled cheese with apple slices or a layer of homemade apple chutney or apple butter. With these tips in in mind, you’ll be able to incorporate your favorite seasonal flavors into an endless array of sandwich combinations.
