This week Nichole is sharing a Workout Routine. A Healthy Recipe from me + Fitness Tips from Nichole= a healthy, happy, balanced life!
Nichole’s Summer Workout Tips …
Summer break is here! I use excited punctuation but I am going to be honest sometimes that sentence would be followed with…because I have some mixed feelings. For the next 3 months my routine is out the window, as with so many of my clients. Come fall I know that I will be having a repeat of the same conversation I have every fall with a handful of my clients. Summer comes, routines go out the window, and unhealthy habits creep in. No more working out because it is too hard with kids at home and their crazy schedules, vacation gets us off kilter, ice cream/popsicles/other sugar treats invade our homes, etc. Let’s try to avoid the fall conversation and talk about what we need to do today.
Remember, the more time you spend out of routine the harder it is to get back on to that routine.
Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs are so fun to make, a healthier dessert, and festive for summertime!
You know when it’s time to throw a backyard summer party and you’ve got so much amazing food to eat that dessert seems like just another thing to worry about. Well, these Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs are just the thing you’re looking for!
Everyone loves Strawberry Shortcake so why not put a fun kabob spin on it?! They taste fabulous and can be made ahead so there’s no fuss when it comes time to serve dessert!
Angel Food Cake and Strawberries don’t pack such a huge calorie punch… it’s not exactly “healthy” I know. BUT, I’ll take a “healthier” dessert and sometimes that totally works for me 🙂 Pair our Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs with light whipped topping instead of whipped cream and it’s getting even healthier still!
- 3 cups fresh strawberries with greens attached
- 1 6 ounce prepared angel food cake loaf
- 2 cups light whipped topping or whipping cream
- 12 wooden kabob sticks, 10 inch length
- Using a serrated knife slice angel food cake loaf into 1inch cubes.
- Alternate threading whole strawberries and angel food cake on wooden skewers.
- Serve with light whipped topping or whipping cream.
- *can be assembled up to 8 hours ahead of serving and refrigerated.
The kids will love making these with you~ a supervised kitchen activity is the perfect way to keep busy little hands happy for a while 🙂 Plus, they’ll love serving them at the party and be so proud of their creations! They’ll love helping out!
Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs will be the hit of your summer gatherings!
Happy Fit Friday! Hope you have a wonderful Memorial day!
Much Love and Peace~
Nichole and Ruthie
