Joe’s Hiking Fuel: A Recipe for Delicious Granola

Joe's Granola

As some of you may have seen in Joe’s recent posts to Facebook and Instagram, he had the opportunity to do some hiking in Zion National Park this past weekend. The trails were long, some very steep, and the 7 hour hiking days required some fuel for the pack. This granola was made to be easy for transport, to take on the plane, and then to load up in the backpack for the hike. Did we mention it’s delicious? Get the recipe.

It Tastes Just Like Berry Pie

Berry Pie

There are 3 different berries in this smoothie, so it is loaded with concentrated antioxidants! I also added in the superfood lucuma which adds a lovely creamy taste to the smoothie, reminding me of the beautiful flavors of a homemade berry pie.

Cacao-Nut Mango Smoothie

Cacao-Nut Mango Smoothie

I love to mix up my morning smoothie routine. This recipe is a new, tasty addition to my list of quick and easy, nutrient-packed smoothies. It’s packed with popular super foods like coconut, cacao, and goji berries, and it’s also an excellent source of antioxidant vitamin C, thanks to the mango.

Blueberry & Mango Superfood Smoothie

Blueberry Mango Superfood Smoothie

Smoothies are refreshing, a great way to pack in lots of nutrients, and extremely portable so you can take them with you on the go. This smoothie is loaded with superfoods including chia seeds, goji berries, spinach and blueberries that are all rich sources of phytonutrients (plant-based nutrients), fiber, and antioxidants. It’s also a good source of healthy fat and protein thanks to the hemp, chia, and flaxseeds. Try this tasty spring smoothie for breakfast, as an addition to a light lunch, or as a snack.
