Latina Bloggers #PackMoreHealth in New York City

#LatinaBloggers are everywhere and we love it! We're working hard, traveling, managing our homes and caring for our families. With so much to do, it's very important we take care of ourselves and give our bodies the healthy fuel it needs to keep going.

We were beyond excited to work with AMWAY's Nutrilite on inviting a group of Latina bloggers to New York City to learn more about the benefits of healthy eating, a fitness routine and supplements from optimal health expert Dr. Kip Johnson, fitness expert Sean Foy and nutritional scientist Dr. Micheline Vargas.

We also managed and hosted a Twitter Party with fellow bloggers Angie Martinez of Little Inspiration, Bren Herrera of Flanboyant Eats, Jeannette Kaplun of Hispana Global and Lynda Trujillo of Hit the Road Jane. It was such a huge success that we reached over 19 million impressions and hit the #2 trending spot in the U.S.!

Not only did we tweet the night away, we learned how to #PackMoreHealth into our daily meals by way of color with renowned chef Rick Bayless.

Want to maximize health benefits? Is Phytonutrient protection, energy, weight control, mental health and variety a concern? Divide your fruits and vegetables into five color categories - red, yellow/orange, green, blue/purple, and white. Strive for two servings from each color category daily and eat between 9-13 servings a day. Play around with herbs and spices, visit your local farmer's markets more often and break the habit of relying on your go-to color (Assess your current intake of color).

Cooking with color is a very simple concept to follow. It just takes a little planning ahead and a basic understanding of flavors. For example, according to Chef Rick Bayless - Some greens are very bitter, so it's important to smooth out the taste. To sweeten it up, just add onion. He prepared a Swiss chard taco with caramelized onion, fresh cheese and red chile. It looked and smelled amazing - and it really did not take very long to pack all we need into one dish. Time is such a factor for us all. However, it really doesn't take that much time at all to steam or saute fresh veggies, and have that as a snack throughout the day. Nuts, walnuts and peanuts are also great for those of who like a little crunch. Oh, and who doesn't love a nice refreshing smoothie as a treat? And to make up for what you may miss, don't forget your supplements and drink plenty of water. However, before you do any of this, it's important to start your day with a healthy breakfast. Don't just rely on your favorite cup of cafecito to get you through the morning!
