fitfathers Fit Fathers Testimonial: Gary Gianetti MS, CPT Healthy Altitudes
To me, being a Fit Father is about balancing your life with your family’s lives. It is selfless and imperative to put them first, but you can’t let yourself get unhealthy in the process. Fit Fathers can set an example to be active, eat well and stay happy …For Your Life. Without these three focal points our chances for disease and setting bad examples for loved ones increase. That said, it is important to be there and be healthy. Every day I wake up and say to my family, “What can I do for your life?”
Try it for a day, a week, a month and see how this new perspective makes you a Fit Father.

fitfathers #AutoFit by #FitFathers goes off-roading with the 2015 #Jeep #Renegade: Small, but Rough, Rugged & Raw--
@Jeep, the venerable SUV brand continues to deliver more country hits than Taylor Swift. No, not music hits, I’m speaking country as in backwoods, forests, mud, ruts and rough terrain. The Trail Rated manufacturer is on a roll selling over a million vehicles in the last five years. That’s a great deal of off-roading! Next up is the newfangled 2015 Renegade which sets them in small, utility territory (B segment) providing fuel efficiency, elevated driving dynamics, full capability, interior room and daring utility in typical Jeep fashion.

fitfathers …by One Green Planet
This Veggie Quinoa Bowl is so yummy and filling it will leave meat lovers without room for seconds. It contains a mix to crunchy raw veggies, protein packed nuts, seeds, tofu and quinoa and is topped off with an addicting creamy vegan sauce. You can play around with the recipe by mixing up the veggies, grains, nuts and seeds, with whatever you have on hand.
SERVES 4-6 Cook Time 15
INGREDIENTS
BOWL:
1.5 cups uncooked quinoa
½ Tbsp olive oil
½ Tbsp sesame oil
2 cups organic tofu, diced into 1.5cm cubes
1 cup almonds, chopped
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup pumpkin seeds
2 cups spinach, chopped
1 large beet, peeled and grated
3 carrots, peeled and grated
2 avocados, diced
2 tomatoes, diced
2 Tbsp chia seeds
Dressing:
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup tamari
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp tahini paste
PREPARATION
In a medium pot add the quinoa and 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, or until all of the water is absorbed.
Heat olive oil and sesame oil in a large pan over medium heat. Drain tofu and cut into 1.5cm cubes. Sauté tofu for roughly 10 minutes or until golden on all sides, remove from the pan and set aside.
You can enjoy the almonds and seeds raw, or you can toast them by placing the almonds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds in a dry pan and toasting them on high heat until golden. They will toast really quickly so stay with the pan and give it a shake every few seconds. Set aside to cool.
Place the garlic in the food processor and pulse until minced. Add the remaining dressing ingredients and pulse until smooth.
To assemble, place a layer of warm quinoa at the bottom of the bowl. Then top with all the veggies, ... Read more at www.FitFathers.com

fitfathers #Nissan celebrates #FitFathers in lead-up to #SBXLIX through #withdad campaign -- Nissan today unveiled a unique marketing campaign as part of the company’s run-up to advertising in Super Bowl XLIX, the first time the automaker has advertised during the big game in nearly two decades.
Unlike typical Super Bowl teaser campaigns, Nissan will not tease the actual game day spot prior to airing during the Super Bowl. Without revealing the game day commercial, Nissan’s teaser activity will align with the overarching theme of the campaign, which celebrates the journey that not only dads – but also moms and children – face in trying to make family a priority while striving to balance work. The company will employ the #withdad ahead of the game day activity.
Nissan has enlisted popular YouTube content creators who have established audiences to create special pieces of content that speak to the theme of #withdad. They were tasked with creating short online teaser films using their individual styles and voices to bring the #withdad – and great family adventures – idea to life.
“After nearly a two-decade absence from the Super Bowl as an advertiser, we want to maintain the excitement and anticipation of game day. With so many commercials airing before the big game, I fundamentally believe it takes away much of the magic of showing the commercial on the biggest stage of the year. Prior to the Super Bowl, we do however want to build suspense around our story, while provoking a social conversation around the overarching theme. Our highly creative YouTube content creators help us do just that as we get ready to share our spot with America on Super Bowl Sunday,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations U.S., Nissan North America, Inc.
#withdad is much more than a hashtag, however. It’s a celebration of the many innovative and exciting ways that dads make life better for their families – and how they strive to find a perfect work-life balance.
