Sometimes it can be tough to get a healthy breakfast in. You all know how important breakfast is, it has been drilled into our brains since 7th grade health class. I find that I am always running around in the morning and barely have time to make a healthy breakfast that will keep me full and focused all throughout my morning. I have found that breakfast smoothies are my best bet when it comes to a fast and nutritional breakfast because all I have to do is throw a few ingredients in a blender, blend, and then toss it in a cup and go! Here is the recipe to my favorite breakfast smoothie, the blueberry oatmeal smoothie!

Ingredients:download

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ¾ cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tsp honey (this is optional)
  • And if you are using fresh un-frozen blueberries, 4-5 ice cubes

If you REALLY want to be prepared, measure out the blueberries, banana, and oatmeal the night before and place them into a plastic Ziploc baggie. Put the baggie in the freezer to keep the fruit frozen and in the morning all you have to do is toss those ingredients into the blender and then add the other few ingredients! It is super easy to make this smoothie, just add all of the ingredients together into the blender and blend until they are all chopped up! This recipe makes about 2 servings of smoothie, so give the rest to your siblings or parents! Trust me, they will love you for it. J

Enjoy!

XOXO, Chels

If you can make life a little easier, then why wouldn’t you?!  Life hacks are all about turning something difficult into something simple!  Check out the hacks below, because why wouldn’t you want a simpler life??

  1. Only have a pair of flared jeans to tuck into your boots? Roll your jeans and stuff them into a pair of tall socks! Once tucked into your boots, you’d never know they weren’t skinny jeans!
  2. Remove deodorant marks with pantyhose or dryer sheets!
  3. Hate the green marks your rings leave behind on your fingers? Before wearing them, paint the inside of each ring with clear nail polish to avoid green stains!Chelsea Crockett- clear nail polish rings
  4. Make smoothies fast by freezing fruits and veggies in single serving bags! Just poor the bag, plus some ice and juice, and you’ve got yourself a smoothie in no time!
  5. When packing, wrap your shoes in a shower cap to keep them from rubbing against your clothing. Also, place one end of a necklace through a straw to avoid it from tangling.
  6. Cut swimming noodles and place them in your boots to keep them upright!
  7. Run your mascara brush under hot water for easier and smoother application.

I hope I made your life a little easier!

Love you all,

Chelsea

Hi Insiders 🙂

                Have you ever reached for that bag of chips after a day out by the pool, but decided not to eat them because they are bad for you?  I do that all the time, except I usually eat a few…opps!  Summer is the best time to get your body in shape.  I’m going to give you a few healthy options for summer snacks to keep your body energized.  Your body will love you for it!  They are easy to prepare and tasty as well!ChelseaCrockett- Cucumber Sandwiches

                Crackers and cheese is always a quick option for a snack.  Crackers are full of carbs and really high in sodium.  A great alternative to crackers are cumber slices.  They are low carb and just as yummy!  Slice them thick or thin and enjoy with your favorite kind of cheese.

                Chelsea Crockett- Orange SmoothieAnother great snack or breakfast option is a smoothie.  Full of fresh fruit, juices, and yogurt, a smoothie will give your body all the nutrients it needs!  Adding a small handful of spinach will take your smoothie to a whole new level…and you can’t even taste it!  Click here for a handful of my favorite smoothie recipes!

                My last healthy option is whole wheat tortillas.  They can be used for a variety of snacks!  Spreading peanut butter and sliced bananas on a whole wheat tortilla and rolling it up makes for a sweet summer snack.  A great lunch option is adding your favorite deli meat and cheese to a whole wheat tortilla.  It’s much better for you than bread!  I hope you all can start snacking smart and being healthy!
