Kick off Summer with some healthy treats!

Here we are- the unofficial start of Summer already! I LOVE this weekend (even though it’s rainy here in MA today…), because I’m a Summer girl through and through. Beach, BBQs, flip flops, outdoor workouts, summer cocktails…I love it all!!

I hope you have a weekend planned spending time with people you love, doing what it is you love. But, if you happen to be heading out to a cookout anytime soon, here are a few healthy appetizers or snacks you can bring to keep you on track with your wellness goals:

ℝ𝕒𝕤𝕡𝕓𝕖𝕣𝕣𝕚𝕖𝕤 𝕒𝕟𝕕 ℂ𝕣𝕖𝕒𝕞 ℙ𝕣𝕠𝕥𝕖𝕚𝕟 ℙ𝕒𝕣𝕗𝕒𝕚𝕥
1 c plain Greek Yogurt (for my non dairy friends, I recommend plain coconut yogurt)

1 scoop Creamy French Vanilla Protein Powder. I use IsaLean Whole Blend- find it here:

2 Tbsp Vanilla Almond Milk

10 Raspberries (or Strawberries and wild Blueberries)

1 scoop IsaFruits:

1 Tbsp Granola (I buy the Purely Elizabeth brand from Thrive Market or Whole Foods)

Place the yogurt in a bowl and mix it with the protein powder with a spoon. It will be thick. Thin it out with 1 Tbsp of vanilla almond milk and keep stirring. Add more milk if you need to get the consistency as you prefer. Mash up the raspberries (or cut strawberries, whole wild blueberries) and IsaFruits combination with the protein and yogurt mix. Top it off with sprinkling the granola for crunch on top.

I can’t leave this post without the deepest gratitude to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Let that gratitude stay with us this weekend while we enjoy the time off, festivities or chance to recharge.

To your health!



Staying healthy on vacation- yes, it is possible!!

Hi friends! I’ve been MIA for a few weeks getting ready for and then enjoying a truly magical (and equally exhausting) family vacation to Disney! It was an incredible 8 days- the kids had the BEST time.
I love traveling. I’ve missed it the last few years and I’m so grateful to be back to it. But, I also really need some amount of routine in my life- when it comes to workouts, nutrition and supplements. It’s just who I am and I’m healthier and happier when I stay somewhat consistent with the fundamentals.

Thankfully I somehow found some healthy-ish food at our resort and some of the Disney parks. I brought my daily cbd, magnesium and shakes with me for better sleep, decreased anxiety, prevention of the oh so common “travel belly” and healthy (and cheaper) breakfasts. So, now it just came down to the workouts…

I know vacation workouts aren’t for everyone, but they’re a must for me (and my sanity!). I managed to squeeze in short you tube workouts after we visited the Disney parks every day…mainly barre and cardio workouts. Then, on our dedicated resort/pool day, I was able to get a workout in in the morning, while the kids had their breakfast.

Here’s what I did-
Quick hotel room workout- “Nifty 50”. 50 reps of each move (per side). No equipment needed, break it up into however many reps you want at a time, and you’ll be done in under 20 minutes (but don’t forget a dynamic warm up and cool down).

✨High knees

✨Step back lunges

Wanna burn fat? Wanna get stronger? Wanna increase your endurance?? Do lunges!

✨Tricep dips

I don’t suggest these with a 35 pound kid on your lap, but whatever it takes to finish my workout!

✨tabletop crunches

✨Push ups

The ultimate do anywhere, tone everything move. An oldie, but a goodie 👌👌

Most of my training clients know how much I love these easy travel workouts. Hope you find it useful on your next trip too!

To your health,
