Some Quick Prep for Summer Success

It’s official…as of 2 pm this afternoon, I am off for the summer! I’m organizing for two weeks of upcoming adventures and a little quick prep will assure that I stay on track.

There is nothing I appreciate more for a satisfying summer breakfast than a nourishing, cool smoothie. I use my favorite seasonal fruits, spinach, coconut almond milk and a combination of dry items to add a little boost of power.

This little power boost includes 1 tbsp of milled flax, 1/8 cup walnuts and 1/8 cup rolled oats for a total of 160 calories. Measuring these items and bagging them up ahead afford me time savings and fewer larger items to take along.


I then list the contents of each prepackaged bag on a larger bag with calorie info and pack what I need for a trip…it’s that simple!


Once I reach my destination, I purchase the desired fruits, spinach and coconut almond milk…and I’m all set for success. It may not look all that great, but it’s fantastic!


A super-summery way to put my Best Foot Forward…and you can too! Think about the foods you rely on for success and consider how you can simplify!
