Start your week off with a nutritious bang!  

This smoothie blends spirulina, avocado, blueberries and kale!  Having a green smoothies loaded with phytonutrients, antioxidants and healthy fats is a great way ensure healthy eating all day long!

A few weeks ago on a road trip to Maine we made a pit stop at Whole Foods for a healthy lunch. Noah and I split a smoothie for dessert that I recreated today!

Are you planning a summer road trip?  

Here are a few ideas to keep you healthy on the road!

Research “smart” stops along the way:  See if there are grocery stores, juice bars or sandwich shops off of the route you are taking.  Example: If you stop at a grocery store you can buy fresh fruit, hummus and pita for a healthy lunch!  Some grocery stores may even have a salad bar! Much healthier than a whopper and fries and won’t leave you slumping and sleepy at the wheel!

Pack “smart” snacks:  Bring a variety of sweet, salty and crunch foods!  “Smart” snacks include popcorn, lara bars, fresh fruit and whole grain or gluten free pretzel sticks.

Stay hydrated:  Bring plenty of clean water in BPA free bottles or mason jars.  Add fresh lemon which will help you stay alert and refreshed!

Don’t fill your belly where you fill your gas tank!  Nothing healthy usually comes out of a gas station!  If you find yourself in a pinch and a gas station is your only option, find foods with minimal ingredients and an expiration date!  Whole food snack options include nuts, fruit, granola and yogurt.
