Happy Thursday, friends!
We are SO glad we were back in the studio this week. Each of you brought so much energy and worked so hard. June is off to a great start! We hope that you are joining us for our Light a Fire in You- Squat Challenge! Remember that completing this challenge each day and turning in your calendar at the end of the month, enters you into the drawing for a MONTH OF FREE SESSIONS! Throughout June, we are excited to share our living transformed on vacation tips and ideas from some of our trainers! This week, we will hear from Lisa and what she has to say about how she lives transformed on vacation!
Summer is in full swing at our home and I’m enjoying every minute of it! We have lots of travel plans and I’m excited to practice healthy living even when on the road. Meal planning, nutrient rich snacks, and fun filled activities keep us feeling our best when away from home.
Meal planning while on vacation can help save time resulting in yummy meals and snacks and less trips to the grocery. Packing healthy snacks to bring down to the water or in your backpack while touring the town keeps you feeling your best without any unwanted calories. Many vacations offer the opportunity for biking, walking, swimming, and other outdoor activities. Take advantage!!! Your body will feel great and its an awesome way to spend time with your family. Don’t forget to keep you water bottle close by!
Here is a great High Protein Trail Mix that you can pack for the road and bring down to the beach with you!
High Protein Trail Mix
- 1 cup lightly salted almonds
- 1 cup lightly salted walnuts
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup dried cranberries or blueberries
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (leave chocolate chips out if you will be outdoors)
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
**For nut allergies, replace the almonds and walnuts with pumpkin seeds & sunflower seeds!
You can always toast the nuts in the oven at 450 degrees for 3-5 minutes first to bring out a rich flavor then toss with favorite mix-ins.
Let the family measure and mix and have fun playing with your favorite combinations. Place 1/4 cup into snack bags and keep in your snack basket!
Thank you, Lisa for sharing with us and encouraging us that meal planning is possible and just as important on vacation! You can always refer to our TRANSFORM section of the website for great recipes and workouts, as well as our FREE app! Look out for our future posts from other trainers, as we share and encourage one another to continue to live transformed on vacation!
We hope to see you in the studio this week! If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
