Joe’s Hiking Fuel: A Recipe for Delicious 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.

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.

Very Berry Chocolate Smoothie

Enjoy this rich, creamy, chocolaty smoothie loaded with antioxidants and healthy fats. The cacao powder is all natural and comes right from the cacao bean, and together with the berries adds tons of antioxidants. It’s quick and easy to make and can be a great part of any breakfast, lunch, or an afternoon pick-me-up.
