While taking the boys on play dates and field trips, it can be hard to eat healthy. We have loads of day trips planned this summer, but the menus at places like Story Land and the Children’s Museum cater to the chicken nugget crowd.
Play dates can be equally challenging. We don’t do fruit snacks or Lunchables… we’re working our way towards a sugar free diet, at the recommendation of our pediatrician.
The answer is the Isagenix smoothie.
We started this nutrition system over a year ago, and I’ve become a little obsessed. I make us each a smoothie with kefir, some fruit, veggies and Isagenix protein. I blend them up and load them into a Yeti cup and they stay ice cold for the entire day.
Sawyer is sticking to pouches for now, as he hasn’t exactly mastered the art of the spoon.
I usually pack some veggie chips or crackers for the boys to share, just in case they want to snack later on in the day.
The difference that this has made in our lives is hard to explain. I’m filled with more energy, and just feel… better! I had no idea how indulging in pizza or burgers during a play date was fueling my brain fog. Now, I’m able to stay happier throughout the day; my gut and my head are in a better place.
When I’m able to take the kids out for a day, I want to be able to enjoy them. Not just the pizza.
