This time of year, with vacations, kids out of school, back-to-back plans, and the need for continuous convenience, healthy eating habits can easily fall by the wayside.

For me, the best way of ensuring I get the nutrition I need in the midst of all the running around, is to maintain a stock of solid resources in my pantry and a plethora of fresh produce in my refrigerator – that way, I can whip something up on-the-go and stay fueled in an efficient, high-impact way.

I partnered with Bob’s Red Mill to bring you this post and inspire you to Fuel Your Awesomeness. Let’s marinate on this for a paragraph or three, because fueling awesomeness should be our number one priority. I saw a quote the other day that resonated with me – “Self-care isn’t selfish. You can’t serve on an empty tank.”

One of the issues we have as independent, hard-working individuals is taking the time to nurture and uplift ourselves before trying to do so for others.

We feel like we aren’t being good people when we’re giving to ourselves, when in reality, we become more a more valuable resource when we’re operating at full capacity. 

One crucial way of showing ourselves we care is by feeding our bodies! I love that Bob’s Red Mill strongly advocates nutrition and brings it to your home with effortless convenience. They’re here to help fill your energy tank in the most positive ways.

I love supplementing my smoothies with high-quality protein powder to make it a well-balanced experience. I used Bob’s Red Mill’s Vanilla Protein Powder Nutritional Booster to add a nutrition boost (and delicious vanilla flavor) to this smoothie bowl.

The powder includes pea protein, chicory root (yielding fiber and prebiotics), chia seeds, probiotics, is sweetened with monk fruit sweetener, and is dairy-free and vegan. In this sense, you’re getting both protein and fiber as well as omega-3s, iron, and a healthy dose of good bacteria.

I make & keep chia puddings (protein powder added into the mix) in the fridge for go-to snacks & meal replacements. I blend bananas & strawberries with coconut or almond milk for smoothies or frozen treats. And there's nothing like a mixed salad of bright greens & spinach leaves with apple cider vinegar/olive oil dressing to keep the engine revved.

My daughter and I make smoothies almost every morning. She has to be at school so early she really does not feel like eating food. This would be great to boost her immunity for school.
