Make-ahead meal

We’re always looking for ways to reduce time in the kitchen and simplify healthy eating, especially during busy mornings throughout the week. These make-ahead smoothie packs are an easy way to prep smoothies in advance. You’ll save time and take the guesswork out of what to put into the blender during hectic mornings throughout the week.

How to choose a healthy nut butter:

Because so many nut butters are made with an array of not-so-great (highly processed) ingredients, it can be difficult to determine which nut butters are minimally processed and good for you, in moderation of course. Choose nut butters made with only the nut and a limited amount of salt (basically, the nut ground up into nutty goodness and occasionally a limited amount of salt… nothing else).

Why include chia seeds?

Not only are chia seeds rich in protein, antioxidants, fiber and omega 3’s, their powerful benefits range from heart health and helping your immune system to fighting off bacteria and viruses to aiding in weight loss. 

A great pre/post-workout snack

Half a smoothie doubles as a delicious pre/post-workout snack. Nut butter is a great source of protein and healthy fat. Oats are easy-to-digest carbs that power you up without weighing you down. Prepare a smoothie and enjoy half 30-60 minutes before your sweat sesh and the other half immediately after (or freeze it for later).
