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.

And lastly, look at this simple (patriotic) salad🍓🫐

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!
