Sweet smoothies hit the spot…most of the time. But if you’re craving something with a little more “kick,” try sipping this spicy drink instead. Greens and seeds come together with creamy almond butter and a dash of chipotle powder for a hearty, healthy brew with just the right amount of heat!
That’s a wrap! End dieting frustration with a fruit-stuffed, protein-packed breakfast made with this season’s star berries. But before you break out the whole-wheat tortillas, take a peek at the ingredients list. The crepe-like blanket snuggling all that sweetness isn’t made from flour. Fluffy, flavorful and diet-friendly, it’s a combination of low-fat, high-energy morning favorites whisked and baked in a creative way.
One of the best ways to cool down when the temperature heats up is a good, old-fashioned ice pop. But those syrupy, neon numbers from the supermarket freezer case aren’t what your kids (or you!) need. Make your own sweet, frozen treats on a stick with fresh fruit and juices—or try my recipe for Nutella Ice Pops (yes—you read that right! NUTELLA ice pops!).
Whether you’re looking for something Paleo suitable for snacky bits to serve guests before dinner or something the little ones can pick at on the go, it’s easy to create healthy snack options requiring nothing other than a pair of hands with which to eat them!
Popcorn is a perfect light, crunchy summertime snack. Plus, it only costs about 16 cents per serving—you can’t beat that when you’ve got a bunch of hungry kids hanging out at home. Rather than oil and the traditional stovetop method, I like to use an air popper, which I place outside to keep the heat (and the kids) out of the kitchen. After popping up a big batch, I sprinkle on one of my homemade seasoning blends to transform boring, plain-old puffs into a super satisfying sweet or savory snack.
How often do you skip breakfast? Many people don’t make eating a nutritious morning meal a priority, even though they know they should. A healthy breakfast—ideally eaten within an hour of waking—helps fuel the body and mind, providing essential nutrients to start the day. It’s also important for maintaining weight, increasing concentration and productivity and supporting overall health.
If the reason you’re not eating breakfast is a hectic schedule, try waking up 15 minutes earlier. Or better yet, prepare your meal the night before. This recipe for Baked Banana Oatmeal with Walnuts and Raisins can be refrigerated or easily packed in resealable containers for breakfast on the go.
In Japanese, edamame means “beans on a branch.” These small, bright green veggies are actually soybeans, harvested before they’ve reached full maturity. Edamame has been a part of Asian cuisine for centuries, but it’s recently become wildly popular here in the United States. And for good reason!
