Does it matter if your kids are athletic?

Physical activity is a key pillar of good health. What does that look like for you and your family? It doesn't have to mean organized sports. It doesn't have to be expensive. It just has to happen. Take a walk, go to the park, throw or kick a ball, and then share with your kids how this is benefitting their bodies, and why it will make them strong, healthy adults.

I'm all about the smoothie these days. Inspired by Dr. Sears' advice to sip a smoothie to get much needed nutrition and stabilize blood sugar, I've been on a smoothie binge. Here's my latest concoction, that even my 3- and 5 year-old love. 

1 cup of almond milk or juice

½ cup of frozen fruit like blueberries and mango

½ cup greek yogurt or scoop plant-based protein powder

1 banana

½ cup of spinach

2 tbsp ground flaxseed

1 tbsp cinnamon

1 tbsp organic peanut butter

or ¼ of a ripe avocado

I use the NutriBullet from Target, which functions as a blender and cup all-in-one. Less dishes! Yes ma'am! 

Are you looking for new recipe ideas, wellness tidbits, and healthy lifestyle musings? Well, you've come to the right place! I geek out on all things health-related and hope you enjoy a peek into my world. I've been known to beam with pride over my blood panel after my latest physical. I'm truly fascinated by the amazing things our body can and will do, and am so often humbled when things aren't going my way. Here's to sharing this world together. Every day I seek health and happiness. Will you join me?
