3 Pageant Week Snacks

International Week is so exciting! It’s nonstop adventure from the moment you arrive in the host city. Because you want to put your best foot forward, it’s important that your body has the fuel it needs! You have to eat and provide your body with nutrition. Remember, one of your phases is called “fitness wear.” Judges are looking for heart healthy contestants.

Today, let’s take a look at three small snacks that will keep you ready for the job and allow you to shine brightly!

1. Quest Bars

I am obsessed with Quest Bars. There are so many flavors - cookies and creme, apple pie, blueberry muffin, brownie, and more! The flavors allow you to satisfy your craving without taking in extra energy that you may not need at the time. They are a great source of protein for pageant week, as most pack around 20g of protein per bar. This will keep you full and focused between meals and the protein will provide the energy and strength you need each moment of the day! If you have a microwave in your room, they are also really good heated up for about 10 seconds.

2. Almonds

These treats also pack protein and are a different consistency than the protein bars. Sometimes you just want something salty, and almonds are great for that need. Coming from a Colombian family, I love spicy food! There are numerous almond brands that have different flavors, even habanero pepper, to also satisfy what craving you have at the moment. I love that they can be packed into small baggies and you can munch on them when you need more energy during the longer rehearsals.

3. Fruit

There are so many fruit options! If you have a moment to sit down and you’re feeling dehydrated… find watermelon or cantaloupe because they naturally contain a very high amount of water. Bananas are also a good option - especially if you’re walking around in 6 inch heels all day because they will keep you from getting cramps in your calves or feet. I also love a good Fuji apple with peanut butter!

I know Internationals can be stressful, but don’t forget to take care of yourself and provide your body with the nourishment it needs. Miss International has to be ready for anything and you have to be fueled to do that!
