Why do you work at Pack Health? What’s your favorite part of your job? Where do you get your inspiration?
Working for Pack Health is a very fulfilling job. I love seeing the progression of my members! A lot of my inspiration comes from members meeting their Tiny Steps and goals.
What’s your favorite healthy food and why? Share a recipe with us!
My favorite healthy food right now is overnight oats. I love this quick and easy breakfast meal that is also a great grab and go option! The recipe I use is 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup milk, 1 tbsp greek yogurt, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tbsp honey, and a dash of cinnamon. Mix all of your ingredients the night before and let it sit for at least 5 hours.
What’s your favorite way to stay active and why?
My favorite way to stay active is to walk or ride my bike. I love getting outside in nature which helps me physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
How else do you practice self-care?
I practice self-care in multiple ways depending on what is available. I love to get my nails done, go shopping, take a bath, or snuggle my baby.
What advice do you have for someone just joining the program?
To have an open mind and to be honest with your Health Advisor. They want the very best for you and to help as much as they can!
Tell us a member story!
One of my favorite member stories is from a member who slowly changed her eating habits to meet her health goals. She started by picking lots of healthy recipes that we reviewed, then she decided which she wanted to start cooking. She made a plan by selecting two to three recipes a week, going grocery shopping, and prepping her food on the weekend. These recipes turned into a great arsenal that she can pull from and prepare.
