Go Get Em’ Smoothie

Today I felt like I was in a lull. I had a really hard time waking up and getting out of bed, and, I felt like I was going to fall asleep standing up all day! My natural instinct was to go and get the biggest cup of coffee I could find! But, I knew this would just end up making me crash in the matter of a few hours. Instead, I whipped up an awesome green smoothie recipe to get me going. It worked amazing! Try this out the next time you feel like you need a pick me up!

What you need:

  • 1/4 avocado
  • 2 cups kale
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • tsp cocoa powder
  • tsp chia seeds

Blend everything up and drink!

Much Love!

Vegetable soup

Warm up some vegetable broth and cut up veggies in a pot, place in thermos and bring for lunch with a piece of toast.

Off Campus Healthy Lunches

School has started, and you and your friends probably go off campus a lot for lunches. It is hard to eat healthy at fast food restraunts that most teens eat at, but here are some options that are healthier, and that will give you some energy to get through the rest of your day!

At Goodtimes

The grilled chicken salad is actually delicious! Just ask for the dressing you like best on the side, and only use a little bit.

At Chipotle

The chicken bowl is my favorite, just make sure you only eat half because they give you more insides than a typical burrito.

At Chick-file

Their grilled chicken sandwiches are the best option, ask for a side salad instead of fries, at half the bun, and get water to drink!

At Subway

A veggie delight on flatbread is my absolute favorite option! If your not a big veggie person, get a lean meat sandwich on flat bread, and make sure not to go crazy with the sauces.

At McDonalds

This is my least favorite place, so if you can avoid it DO. If you are stuck in a situation where you have to have it, get a salad or a yogurt parfait.

 

My suggestion would be to find a local place that does fast salads and soups, etc. It is healthier, and not to mention safer to eat!
