Winter Trail: Cheese and Pepperoni

The ideal winter trail food is high in carbohydrates and protein. Trail mix is the perfect snack as it's easy to pop in your mouth while keeping a move on. One way to get a good bit of all of these things is to bring bread, pepperoni and cheese as a way to get some of these things during an easy snack break! Or, you can put them in a baggie that is easily accessible while your bag is still on your back (think front or fanny pack). Soft goat cheese is easy to pack on winter hikes and doesn’t melt all over the container you keep it in! You can find great three packs at Trader Joes, or any other store. If you don't like goat cheese, another will work, but I really recommend it! It comes in many flavors, too. Pepperoni or a sausage is great protein source, and it can be cut up to be kept in the same package with the cheese. If you want to bring bread along, too, you've got a great snack that I like to enjoy at home before hiking, or on the trail! Either way, the combination of cheese, pepperoni and bread or crackers is a great combination of fats and carbs that will keep you healthy--and energized!--when hiking in the cold winter season.

This isn't totally related to hiking, but it's good to know my favorite snack is great for keeping up high energy this winter, no matter what I'm doing outside!
I was thinking to hike, but I've been postponing due to my fear of freezing weather. I should pack these snacks and go on hiking this weekend for sure! Thank you for reminding me :)
Cheese and salami are serious no brainers to bring on any hike once you hit chilly fall. They're not going to spoil (unless you're out west in which case find something else!) I don't usually cut mine into hearts, though haha

It's never too early to prepare for Fall. My friends and I just started thinking about outdoor activities during Fall and here I am looking through hairstyles for hiking. I'm that excited. Also, I want to share my curated list to everyone because I thought some of you might be interested in changing up your hairstyles for your fall classes or activities such as biking, rock climbing or yoga. Medium to Long Hair: Easy Pulled Back Ponytail If you're hitting the hills or biking this one is perfect.

Pull the crown of the hair into a ponytail. 2. Then flip hair through the ponytail. 3. Repeat until the hair at the nape is also pulled back. Tip: The ponytail should be stack on top of the previous tail. Curly Hair: Braidout Ponytail I know how annoying it is to have hair brushing on your face. Even though my hair is not voluminous I get pretty irritated by the piecey strands bugging my forehead. This is why i can't do bangs because I'll end up clipping them up most of the time. If you have the same problem, try this cute hairstyle by AlleySinai. She braids the front and bring it back into a half ponytail. You can also pull it back into a ponytail if you want to keep the hair off your shoulder. Short Hair: Fringe Braid Ponytail Same concept with the braidout ponytail except you're only braiding one part of the bang. Then tie the rest of the hair back in a ponytail. This one doesn't have to be perfect There you have it.
You Can Drop These 4 Costly Grocery Shopping Habits
The largest spending bucket in India belongs to groceries. According to our research, Indians spent Rs. 21,491 on this category in 2017-18, or 28% of total spending. To save money on a regular basis, some may try to be disciplined by sticking to a shopping list, making fewer trips or clipping coupons. For those who are particularly budget-minded, we've laid out 4 bad habits to drop if you truly want the most value out of shopping for your everyday necessities. Don't Go Grocery Shopping When You're Hungry Hunger is one of the most basic and intense feelings people can have, and such a sensation can easily throw you off your budget at the supermarket. Even when armed with a shopping list, hungry people can be prone to buying unnecessary items just because they want food so much more in the moment. To prevent this from happening, try going grocery shopping when you're relatively full. For example, grocery shopping after dinner can be a great way to take a stroll to and digest while preparing for the week ahead. Don't Be Loyal to Brands In the early 20th century, the key to success in business was making good products because reliable, high-quality production itself was difficult. Since the 1950s, however, consumer packaged goods companies like P&G have been building their global businesses by inundating consumers with advertising. Over time, consumers came to trust these brands to represent good quality, and they were willing to pay for the convenience of simplifying their shopping process by sticking with well-known products. However, blind brand loyalty isn't the best value shopping strategy in the modern era. First, some companies may charge higher prices for features that aren't actually necessary, like adding a fifth blade to your already sufficient razors. Second, production quality of alternative options has improved, and many of the generic brands sold by supermarkets are just as good as those sold by brand names. One can save significant money by forgoing flashy branded goods across many categories. Stop Paying With Cash Finally, unless you shop for groceries at cash-only marketplaces, always use a credit card when shopping for groceries. As most businesses do, supermarkets charge the same price whether you pay with a card or cash, and there are a number of credit cards in India that provide high rewards specifically on grocery spending. How much one can earn using a credit card depends on one's spending profile, but annual rewards could easily amount to thousands of rupees every year, which is essentially free money if you use your card responsibly. Always Check Your Receipt Most people have a tendency to just stuff the receipt into their bag or pocket after paying for their groceries. Or, they don't even take the receipt from the cashier. This is a bad habit that can actually lose you money over time. First, cashiers can mistakenly scan items twice, charging people for items they are not taking home. Second, sometimes cashiers fail to credit you with a sale or promotion, causing you to miss the discounts to which you're entitled. Therefore, it's advisable to at least glance over your receipt to make sure you paid the correct amount. This article originally appeared on ValueChampion’s blog
