Happy month of love! Rather than sharing decadent desserts this year, we thought it would be awesome to help everyone be a bit healthier. They say if you love yourself, you should take care of yourself, right? So let’s do it! We’ve teamed up with some of the best recipe creators/bloggers/influencers out there to bring you some amazing recipes. So whether you’re currently living a healthy lifestyle or not, these recipes are for you! (Don’t worry – we’ll still share some desserts as well, just with a healthy approach!). Follow us on Instagram to see all of the recipes over the next few weeks.
To kick us off, Kelly from NoshandNourish.com has shared how Blendtec helps living a healthy lifestyle easier. Kelly said, “I love my @blendtec sooooo much, and I literally use it every single day. My new year’s goal of daily green smoothies is going strong!! I also use it for soups, sauces, and popsicle making (when it’s not pouring snow!). It’s also great for baby food making– like when I photographed @babyfooduniverse‘s new cookbook; but MY “baby” is now 6.”
Kelly also created this tasty Greek Veggie Bowl for us! Enjoy.
