This is the second in my series of summer posts with Wild Blueberries! In case you missed the first one, check out the delicious Wild Blueberry Energy Bars I shared last month!
As you may recall, this series is all about helping moms stay fit and healthy when life gets crazy caring for their littles! This month we’re talking about nap time workouts! You know the days. The ones where you can’t even think about leaving the house to get a workout in?
Enter the nap time workout. We know how important working out is for our mental health, so it’s important to have a few go-to workouts saved in what I call my “nap time file”. With a little advanced planning, the kiddo’s nap time can be the perfect time to sneak in a workout on a busy day!
And then of course you’ll need to refuel after the workout…and that will probably coincide with the kids waking up, so I whipped up a healthy, kid-friendly snack you can all enjoy together!
Let’s recap why Wild Blueberries are so awesome! Compared to regular blueberries:
- They have twice the amount of andioxidants and more protective phytochemicals.
- They’re frozen at harvest, which locks in their nutrients and taste.
- They contain less water than regular blueberries, which makes them ideal for baking! Use them straight out of the freezer- no thawing required!
- They’re available year round in the freezer section of many grocery stores and they’re a super convenient way to have this antioxidant-rich superfruit on hand at all times!
