Olympic Snack Attack

I've been snacking full force in front of the TV since the Olympics started. Have any of you caught the Women's Hockey games? Team USA is looking fierce on the ice! I've noticed that a lot of the players wear mascara while they play... I can't help but be curious, wanting to know what kind of mascara Olympic hockey players wear?! Not only are their lashes looking lovely, but they are playing well, too... USA whooped up on Finland, and Switzerland. Tomorrow they play Canada - I'm guessing this will be a tighter game than the previous two. So in terms of snacking, those who know me, know that I'm not much of a hearty eater. I would much rather nibble and crunch on 50 little things sporadically, instead of wolfing down a traditional meat/veggie/carb dinner. As a result, I've become an expert, or as my dad likes to call it "world class" snacker. These are the four leading snacks I've been chowing down on while watching the Olympics.

First up, The Broccoli Slaw Kit

This stuff comes in a kit that contains, the slaw, dressing, and the nuts/cranberries. I always eat the whole bag in a day. A few bites here, a few bites there. This shit is good. And I consider it to be healthy because it has the world broccoli in the title.

Blue Diamond's Rosemary and Black Pepper Almonds

I'm not crazy about plain almonds. I think they are boring and bland tasting. But Blue Diamond has NAILED the flavored almond creations. Some of my other favorites include the Honey Dijon, and Coconut flavors. But I literally could barely contain myself when I first tried the Rosemary and Black Pepper flavor. And, a plus point for Blue Diamond because 28 nuts equates to 1 serving! I get immense satisfaction when I get a lot of "bang for my buck" in the caloric sense. ;)

Wheat Thins Dipped in Chive and Onion Cream Cheese

Reduced-Fat Wheat Thins + Your Favorite Cream Cheese Flavor = You're welcome. (Pro tip: Do not get the store brand Wheat Thins... they are not as good).

Brookside Dark Chocolate Covered Goji Berries

If I'm craving chocolate, I eat these bad boys. I doubt they are much healthier for you than any other chocolate. But I don't eat these to be healthy, I eat them because they are freaking delicious.

Hi everyone! I'm Dana Podgurski! 

I'm a foot in the mouth, tongue in cheek, head in the clouds, and heart on the sleeve kind of gal. I live for new experiences, but am a total sucker for nostalgia at the same time. I'm tough as nails, but am a complete softie for all things kids and animal related. I fly by the seat of my pants, and live for adventure. But I firmly believe that adventure is a mindset that one's self determines.

For work, I am a marketer through and through. Bringing brands to life, and content marketing are passions of mine. Many would consider what I do as nerdy, but I seriously dig it. I have been doing marketing contract work for years, and appreciate the variety it brings, and the relationships I've developed with my clients. To check out my work portfolio, or if you're interested in a partnership, click here.

For fun I love to create - writing/blogging, photography, and painting are my main three mediums of doing so. Feeling good and healthy is also high on my list, as it really lends itself to making everything more enjoyable. So I maintain a very active lifestyle, eat pretty healthy, and am outdoors as much as I can be. And if my blog didn't make it abundantly clear, I absolutely LOVE to travel. I spend any extra money I have on plane tickets, and feel so fortunate to have been to several amazing destinations both domestically and internationally. There's nothing more fulfilling than coming home from a trip and adding a been-there-pin to my map.
