Small Batch Peach Crisp

I have to admit, peaches had never really been my thing. But, we are part of an amazing CSA share this year with a local farm, and of course we got a few peaches from three different varieties! When Cooper wasn’t even moderately interested in trying, I knew I’d have to get creative and then I remembered my apple crisp, and knew I could create another winner (without excessive leftovers) with this small batch honey peach crisp! I also realized I love white peaches, so that was cool, too.

Since it’s the hottest month of the year, my next Fit Kitchen video is all about fluids and hydrating foods! {miss summer snacking?} Staying hydrated is crucial for your health. In the summer heat (hey, August!) it’s easy to lose excess fluid. Water is extremely important for many functions such as digestion, protecting tissues, spinal cord and joints, regulating body temperature, ensuring mental productivity and enabling maximum physical performance. Without enough water all of these functions can become compromised. Not consuming enough water can lead to cramping, headaches, fatigue, heat exhaustion, strokes, organ failure, and more

Agua Fresca Sports Drinks

Agua frescas are typically light, non-alcoholic drinks made from blending fruit with some sugar and water. While they seem refreshing and delicious in the summer in the heat or after a long run, they could use the addition of one nutrient to adequately rehydrate you during and after a workout.

So, something that’s worked for us a few times this year is collaborative meal planning. Continue reading

20+ Ways to Start Liking Vegetables

I talk about Intuitive Eating a lot on here and Instagram, and for some people who have not yet explored it in more detail, it can be confusing. Intuitive eating (IE) is essentially unlearning diet behaviors and poor eating habits build throughout life, so that we can get back to listening to our body. We were born with the ability to self-regulate, knowing when to eat, and how much to eat, and to an extent even what. Nutrition of course matters, but some people unfortunately report IE to be the “eat whatever you want diet”.
