Eating Healthy at the Disneyland Resort

Disneyland (002).jpg

By Reliv Key Director & Founder of DAPS MAGIC Robert Laird

Reliv Live in Anaheim is later this week, which makes the perfect opportunity for you to treat yourself to a trip to the Disneyland Resort!

It’s been said that calories don’t count at Disney. However, while this is a wonderful sentiment, that doesn’t always make it easier to eat healthy when visiting The Happiest Place on Earth! The Disneyland Resort has made great strides in recent years in adding healthy options to its many different menus and offerings. For those looking to keep their healthy eating habits, here are some tips for eating healthy at the Disneyland Resort.

First off, most dining locations and outdoor vending carts will have some sort of a healthy option (typically located on each respective menu). When visiting outdoor vending locations, there is usually some sort of a fruit option and occasionally a vegetable for those looking to eat something besides sweet treats. Sadly, a healthy version of the churro just doesn’t exist (much to our dismay) so that might be a good place to indulge.

Plan Ahead

It’s always a good idea to plan ahead when visiting the Disneyland Resort, especially if you want to have healthy eating habits during your visit. It’s a great idea to bring a backpack with some of your favorite healthy snacks and a water bottle. This will not only ensure you can have your favorite healthy snacks, it will also most likely save you some money! While you are at it, throw in a sweatshirt as nights often tend to cool off.

If you are planning to go to a sit-down restaurant while at the Resort, check out disneyland.com and then check out the dining options under THINGS TO DO. This will give you all the options for dining locations around the Disneyland Resort if you want to dig in and search through the various restaurants and offerings. Most sit-down restaurants have some delicious healthy offerings on the menu.

If you don’t want to spend extra time researching, we will share a few of our favorite healthy options here so you can get the most out of your day and enjoy your Disney experience!

Healthy Highlights

There are a few places that go above and beyond with healthier foods. Here are a few of our favorite quick service options from the team at DAPS MAGIC:

  • Bengal BBQ (Disneyland) – Found in Adventureland, the Bengal BBQ has grilled chicken, beef, veggies, and bacon wrapped asparagus. There are also some recent updates to the menu as well. It’s a great place to get some protein and that is also delicious. This is a great place for a snack but if you are looking to make it a meal, expect to order a few things off of the menu (depending on how much you generally eat in a sitting).
  • Rancho Del Zocalo (Disneyland) – In Frontierland, the Rancho Del Zocalo restaurant offers Mexican food in a quick-service setting. There are some tacos that can be found there that are reasonably healthy, but there is also a fantastic (and large) tostada salad. The fire-grilled chicken is another healthy option that is sure to satisfy.
  • Flo’s V8 Cafe (Disney California Adventure) – Located in Cars Land, this is not only one of the tastiest restaurants at the Disneyland Resort, it also has one of the most beautiful views! It also has a few healthy options that include the spit-fired rotisserie quarter chicken or the veggie tater bake that is both hearty and delicious. There are quite a few different options that can be found at Flo’s V8 Cafe and in general, there will be something there for everyone.
  • Cocina Cucamonga Mexican Grill (Disney California Adventure) – Found on the Pacific Wharf, Cocina Cucamonga Mexican Grill has several options that are similar to those found at Rancho Del Zocalo. There is a half chicken offering here and also a Cocina Bowl al Pastor that are both delicious. It is close to other dining options too if other members of your party would rather have Asian cuisine or soup and sandwiches.
  • Tortilla Joe’s (Downtown Disney District) – Tortilla Joe’s has several healthy options that are delicious for those visiting the Downtown Disney District.
  • Earl of Sandwich (Downtown Disney District) – Although it will be closing later this spring, there are some salads that are pretty good here! Eat here while you can!

These are just a few of our favorite places to get a healthy meal at the Disneyland Resort. Recognize that most sit-down restaurants will offer healthy options on the menu. If there are specific dietary needs, ask to speak with a chef and they will generally come out and work with you to create a dish that fits your needs while pleasing the palate. Also, if you are a vegan check out our series on eating vegan at the Disneyland Resort here.

Snack Time & Desserts

The Disneyland Resort is known for its snacks and desserts. There are a few options that can be found throughout the Resort that won’t completely kill the quest for health.

  • Tropical Imports (Disneyland) – Found in Adventureland, Tropical Imports has both fruits and vegetables for sale. There is also trail mix available here which isn’t quite as easy to find elsewhere.
  • Tiki Juice Bar (Disneyland) – Also found in Adventureland, this is the home of the world-famous Dole Whip. This is a dairy-free dessert that is a fan favorite at the Disneyland Resort! Grab this refreshing treat and enjoy it while watching Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room! They also have Dole Whip Floats here and Pineapple spears.
  • Fairfax Market (Disney California Adventure) – In the Hollywood Backlot, the Fairfax Market offers some healthy snacks that include fruit, vegetables, and even hummus. This is a great place to get a snack and set yourself up for watching a parade (Paint the Night Parade has returned to the Resort).

 

These are just a few tips to help you eat healthier when visiting the Disneyland Resort. Know that eating healthy is all about moderation and making the best choice that you can at any given moment. Make sure to drink LOTS of water while at Disneyland as it is easy to get dehydrated. Then, just make sure to plan ahead so that you can get the healthiest food possibly instead of suddenly realizing you are starving and then grab something that isn’t so healthy. With a plan and some good choices, Disneyland can be not only The Happiest Place on Earth, but also one of the healthier!

5 Things We Learned From The Winter Olympics

Skiing2 (002)

By Social Media Coordinator Michaela Bukaty

The Winter Olympics have come to a close and Champions have been rewarded, but we are still in an Olympics state of mind. There is so much that we can learn from these inspiring athletes beyond their health and fitness routines. It’s easy to overlook the nontangible characteristics and strengths held by Olympians, but it takes so much resilience, patience and motivation to do what they did. Anyone can watch the reruns of figure skating or ski jumping and see the looks of determination on each competitor’s face. These incredible people had a mission and put themselves out there to succeed.

Upon reflection, there is a lot we can learn from Olympians that translates to our business:

  • Follow Your Dream. Dreams can be intimidating, but don’t let your fears get in the way of pursuing them. Also, don’t let others belittle your dreams. I bet every single Olympic Champion faced someone in their life that didn’t believe in them—and look where they are now!
  • Live Your Passion. Once you follow your dream you can truly live your passion and enjoy the life you want! Do you want to stay home with your kids and provide for them? Find a job that fulfills both passions. With Reliv, you can work anywhere and at any time while also providing essential nutrition to your whole family.
  • Always Persevere. At points, you might feel like giving up, especially in the beginning. Don’t! Always persevere and you will be your own version of an Olympic Champion. You will see your success by working hard and sticking with it.
  • Encourage Others. Find your support system and build them up! Always be encouraging others to live their dream and passion. If you encourage your customers and your downlines to be successful, they will be motivated to succeed. Others’ success is your success.
  • Have Fun and Keep Going! Like Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing Tom Pinnock always says, “If you’re not having fun, you’re done!” Have fun with what you do and always keep going.

Why You Should Celebrate More In Your Business

RecognitionNote

By Social Media Coordinator Michaela Bukaty

Each month, Reliv Corporate strives to recognize advancements in the field to celebrate your success and hard work! It is so important to be acknowledged by the entire community and is an easy way to boost the morale of your fellow Distributors or customers.

The term “celebration” comes with a fun, light-hearted connotation; however, celebration should be something practiced regularly in your business. Recognizing the accomplishments of your downline or the weight loss transformations of your customers is completely free on your end but priceless to the receiver. Who doesn’t like being called out for their amazing results? Moreover, your recognition could be the motivational boost that person needs to move to the next level in their business.

Here are a few ways you can celebrate more in your business:

  • Write handwritten notes. A short and sweet handwritten note goes a long way. Send a congratulatory card to someone rocking the business in your downline or to a customer who has been taking Reliv Now® every day! If handwritten notes aren’t your thing, send a personalized email to check in!
  • Congratulate on Facebook. Social media is an incredibly easy way to connect and follow up with your customers. Welcome new Distributors on Facebook with a special post, congratulate your customers’ results or have a monthly spotlight of someone you admire in the business. Whatever you choose, these simple posts will mean the world to the person you are spotlighting.
  • Know the milestones. Has your customer been with you for a year? Is it the 10th anniversary in business of someone in your downline? Send them a note or just give them a quick call on these special milestones! Share with them your favorite memory of working with them.

Celebration promotes positive reinforcement and motivation. Your peers and customers will see and feel the difference once you start acknowledging them more. With these three tips, your team’s morale will go up and become more positive.

How to Have a Healthy Valentine’s Day

HealthyValentine

By Social Media Coordinator Michaela Bukaty

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and it’s time to prepare for the day of love! This year we want you to celebrate yourself by filling your body with the nutrients it loves and Reliv nutrition. You might be tempted to the pink and red candy aisle at the grocery store, but I’m going to challenge you to avoid those aisles and have a healthy Valentine’s Day this year.

Here are three steps to have your best and healthiest Valentine’s Day ever:

  1. Pick a treat. Turn down that box of chocolates and trade it in for a box of delicious Fit3 Active protein balls! These indulgent treats are actually healthy for you and you can customize them to be your favorite flavors. See some of our favorite recipes on our Facebook page.

 

  1. Pick a meal. Try out a new restaurant in your city you’ve been dying to try or choose a recipe to cook together to make your day extra special! You can easily make a healthy dinner by combining a lean protein and lots of vegetables. If you’re going to a restaurant, check out the menu online before you go so that you won’t get overwhelmed before ordering.

 

  1. Pick an activity. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to try out a new workout class or activity with your partner or best friend. Buy a Groupon for salsa dancing, do a free trial class at your local gym, go on a scenic hike—the possibilities are endless!

With these three steps, your body will love you for giving it what it needs! And don’t forget to have your Reliv Shake. We have an exclusive Valentine’s Day recipe on our Instagram. Share this with your friends to share the love!

 

Health Benefits of Winter Produce

Produce (003)

By Social Media Coordinator Michaela Bukaty

I don’t know about you, but we are feeling the peak of winter here in St. Louis at Reliv Corporate! It is so cold and my desire for warm veggie soups is more prominent now than ever. As I’ve mentioned before, I love to shop seasonally for my produce. Buying what’s in season ensures that you are getting fresh and delicious produce. The USDA even has lists of seasonal produce to help guide your next trip to the grocery store!

Here’s my favorite winter produce and their health benefits:

  • Bananas: Bananas are by far my favorite fruit. They are rich in potassium and fiber and add healthy carbohydrates to your healthy diet. Bananas are the perfect addition to any Reliv shake!
  • Cabbage: As odd as it may sound, cabbage is one of the best foods for you. It has an abundance of Vitamin C, which is perfect for cold season. It is also rich in fiber and Vitamin K. Cabbage makes a great addition to any soup, especially vegetable soups.
  • Citrus: Citrus fruits such as grapefruit, oranges, lemons, limes, etc. are famously in-season during winter months. They are high in fiber, Vitamin C and flavonoids. These can be used in your Reliv shake or as a healthy snack.
  • Kale: Kale is a trendy food for a reason. With zero fat and high fiber content, this superfood should be a staple in your kitchen. Kale’s benefits are endless and we love to sneak in a cup or two with our Reliv shakes!
  • Winter Squash: Squash is tasty in almost any recipe and adds warmth to your vegetable-based meals. Spaghetti squash is a great carb-alternative when making spaghetti. Acorn and butternut squash also make great side dishes roasted or mashed. Winter squash contain many vitamins and nutrients including Vitamin A, Vitamin C and magnesium.

Add some seasonal flavors to your menu with these winter produce! Share with us on Facebook your favorite recipes.
