Hope everyone had an amazing 4th of July! Summer is my favorite season (although in Santa Barbara it pretty much feels like summer all year round). There is something about the longer days and warmer nights that I absolutely love. Maybe because more daylight = more time for outside fun?!
The start of summer is a great time to pick up new essentials to supplement all those outdoor activities, so thought I’d put together a list of a few of my summer favorites right now.
Amazing Grass Protein Superfood
When summer hits I go through a smoothie craze. Smoothies are my go-to post morning/afternoon/evening workout recovery drink and the best part is my family enjoys them too! I’m totally a mom now because something as simple as sharing a smoothie with my boys makes me ridiculously happy. Seeing the happiness on their face while sipping it through a straw brings me to tears. Yes, I’m totally that mom now.
I recently had the opportunity to try Amazing Grass‘ new Protein Superfood Powder through my association with Fit Approach. I love that it is all organic and plant based. 1 scoop contains 20 grams of Complete Plant Protein , 7 alkalizing greens and 2 servings of fruits & vegetables. That’s a lot of good stuff in one scoop. Superfood Protein Powder comes in three different flavors: Original, Pure Vanilla and Peanut Butter Chocolate.
I made a fun patriotic smoothie adapted from Katie Hart Morse’s recipe which was a big hit with my family. It was the perfect recovery drink after 2 hours of bike riding on the 4th of July.
Layer 1 – 1 cup blueberries, 1/2 scoop Amazing Grass chocolate peanut butter 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 cup ice
Layer 2 – 1 banana, 1 scoop Amazing Grass pure vanilla, 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, ice
Layer 3 – 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Pour each layer into your mason jar – make layer 1, pour in mason jar, clean out blender, make layer 2, pour on top of layer 1, clean out blender, make layer 3, pour on top of layer 2.
So yummy! I could drink one everyday!
66 Audio BTS Wireless Sport Headphones
Who doesn’t love good beats in the summertime? Whether you are working out or just chilling by the pool, good tunes are essential. I’ve struggled with finding the right headphones before I was introduced to 66 Audio’s BTS wireless headphones. These have been a game changer. The sound quality is amazing and I barely even notice they are on which allows me to get in my zone without the annoyance of fiddling with earbuds that won’t stay in place.
Love the Pain Trucker Hats
If you have been following this blog or my Instagram, you have probably noticed I’m a fan of trucker hats. Having fair skin and blue eyes leaves me very susceptible to sun damage, so wearing a hat for added protection while outside is a must. That’s why you can usually spot me wearing one of these from Love the Pain Official. They fit my head perfectly and I love their message.
