Beach PicnicAhhh... the semi lazy days of summer are finally here, and with that comes hungry kids, and grown ups, looking for some extra food fuel.

What's more refreshing on a hot day that a delicious cold drink?




Smoothies...

Blended frozen fruits and juice.









Popsicles...

All of these smoothies should make equally great tasting popsicles to cool you down.

Just remember when making them that anything frozen tastes less intense, so you may want to sweeten it up a little by adding a small amount of raw honey or a pitted date to the mix.






Kids love to eat food that's colorful, and given that they're only make from melons and honey, let them eat up!

Seeds and Nuts
Seeds and nuts are a crazy great source of nutrients that our bodies need.  They're great by themselves, or easily added into trail mix and other goodies.
