Workout to Pool Smoothie

Summer is calling for lots of smoothies! I don’t think I will ever get over how convenient they are as a snack as well as squeezing in so many servings of fruits and veggies. I whipped up this refreshing shake when I was pretty hungry. I had an intense workout, came home to rinse off, got the kids ready, and packed the pool bag to meet some friends for lunch and swimming. I needed to refuel and hydrate quickly. This did the trick!

Thank you for the big warm response on the Back to School: Lunch Box Ideas! That got me thinking of the first obstacle of the day - breakfast! The kids are often not hungry right away, still half asleep, and parents are trying to get anything into them before they leave. The school day is long [...]
