If you’re a Michigander, you’re probably already aware that our bountiful vegetation and numerous forests create an abundance of allergens like cottonwood and ragweed, which makes it nearly impossible to avoid peak allergy seasons. Here’s some surprising statistics on just how many of us are affected by allergy symptoms…
- 67% – Americans reporting “poor” or “only fair” health status, due to lack of sleep
- 33% – Americans reporting compromised sleep due to allergy symptoms
- 42% – Americans reporting waking-up with allergy-like symptoms
With a growing body of science around the importance of sleep, Americans everywhere are seeking ways to improve their sleep routines – often referred to as “sleep hygiene.” Here are some quick tips from health and wellness expert Stephanie Popso for better sleep hygiene…
1.) Stick to a consistent sleep schedule to regulate your body and health
2.) Limit nighttime stimulants (like electronics) 1-hour before bed.
3.) Wash bed linens in hot water weekly.
4.) Use zippered allergen-barrier mattress protector…like AllerEase Maximum.
5.) Shower at night, versus the morning, to rinse off pollutants.
6.) Invest in an air purifier or plant (like Ivy or Palm) to rid indoor pollutants.
7.) Limit pet time in the bedroom or use allergen barrier bedding.

It’s that time of year when the Back-to-School lunchbox scramble begins. Not sure about you, but I’m constantly trying to come-up with something new and healthier to include in the kid’s lunch boxes. Sabra Singles are fresh dips in a portion-controlled container, they come in Classic and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, and Classic, Spicy & Garden Veggie Guacamole, so they’re a perfect addition to any lunch or snack.
Talk about nutrition…just 2-ounces of hummus a day helps meet the government’s “My Plate” guideline for the suggested weekly serving of beans. Not too many kids want to see beans in their lunch so this is a great alternative to get the nutrition in PLUS Sabra hummus cups are all non-GMO, Vegan, and Gluten Free.
I decided to try out a few new ideas with Sabra Singles and LOVE what I was able to come-up with! I just did a little mixing & matching to create several new lunch ideas and my kids were crazy delighted with each and every one of them. I was also able to come-up with some new after-school snacks for those days when we have after-school sports and club activities. I love that the Sabra Guacamole singles are only 70-90 calories per cup and they’re made with ripe fresh Hass avocados…yum!
If you haven’t already, it’s a great time to try out Sabra Singles. We have a super high-value $2/1 Sabra Hummus or Guacamole Singles Multipack printable coupon available to help you save at the store. Hope this got you thinking about some new quick, easy and healthier options for your back-to-school lunches & snacks!
