This summer, Sargento is teaming up with lifestyle expert, Martha McCully, to encourage people to take a real lunch and savor food the way it was meant to be enjoyed.
Martha McCully has been in the media world for over two decades. She was formerly the Executive Editor of In Style, the founding Beauty Director of Allure and an Executive Producer at Oxygen Media and Gloss.com. She also appeared on HGTV as a judge on the hit show Design Star. Currently she heads up MMc Media, a beauty and lifestyle consulting firm. - Huffington Post
Martha was excited to work with Sargento after learning that their products are all natural. She is a very contentious eater and rarely eats from a package. She was thrilled to learn that she could easily purchase a healthy, tasty cheese at the store thanks to Sargento.
The "Take a Real Lunch" campaign is Martha's way of helping those who work eight or more hours each day to improve their health and well-being through a proper lunch hour. Her advice?
- Get back to nature, literally: There's no easier way to commit to lunch than by actually removing yourself from your work. Put an end to staring longingly out the window and actually take a step outside for real interaction with nature. Bring your meal to a local park or visit a fruit stand in the area for some face-to-face time with fresh air.
- Eat real food: Your body and brain need nutrition. Buy fresh ingredients at the Farmer's Market or local grocery to customize your sandwich every day. Upgrade to juicy heirloom tomatoes, crisp romaine lettuce, real Sargento Natural Sliced Cheese, and freshly-baked whole grain bread. Swapping out bland options for real foods in your mid-day meal is a great way to savor the flavors of a life well-lived.
- Exercise your options: Yes, we've all heard you should join a gym and work out at lunch. But how realistic is this? Not very. However, your office or gym may offer half-hour yoga or stretch classes. Stop day dreaming about a better-for-you lunch hour and do it! Take a real opportunity to get the blood flowing and recharge for the day ahead.
