Getting Outside: Fun Winter Activities

WinterActivities

Brace yourselves: winter is coming! While freezing temperatures may make lounging by the fire sound like the ideal way to spend the next few months, it’s important to commit to staying as active as possible. The good news is that many fun winter activities are also really great workouts. Check out the list below for some ideas on how to get moving (and love it!) this season.

Skiing

Skip the slopes and try your hand at cross-country skiing. Without gravity pulling you along, your upper and lower body have to put in some serious work to keep you moving. Set a distance and race to the finish. Loser buys the next round of hot chocolate. 

Ice Skating

Skating is a fun, affordable option for groups with various ages and skill levels. The longer you skate and the faster you make your way around the rink, the more calories you’ll burn. Not quite freezing where you live? Find an indoor rink!

Snowshoeing

Want to take it a bit slower but still reap the workout rewards? Give snowshoeing a try. It’s a solid lower body workout and a good way to take in the sights. If you don’t have access to snowshoes (or snow, for that matter), a hike will do just fine. 

Sledding

This one sounds pretty easy, because you’re sitting as you ride downhill. The real work comes every time you hike back up to the top dragging that sled or tube. The more fun you want to have, the more work you have to do.

Playing in the Snow

When all else fails, just go play. Snowball fights will have you sprinting up and down the yard in record time, and building forts and snowmen is tough work. As long as you get outside and get active, you’re good to go.

To refuel after all the fun in the snow, check out these tuna recipes made with five ingredients or less.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
