We all know moderation is key.
I talk a lot about butter and sugar here, but realistically those aren’t staples in my every day life. At least, not always! I try to balance my crazy sweet tooth with healthier foods and workouts.
I’ve always been a gym girl and love indoor classes like spin and yoga, but lately I’ve been trying to make myself actually run outside more often (thanks for running s.l.o.w.l.y by my side, Ryan!). And, I’ve been experimenting with different weights and programs, too. The following are a few great resources I’ve found for anyone looking to expand their workouts.
- Jamie Eason’s LiveFit
- Julie Fagan’s blog “Peanut Butter Fingers”
- Shawn Johnson’s The Body Department

Of course, another aspect of a healthy lifestyle is food. This strawberry peach smoothie is the best breakfast or lunch on the go! The Greek yogurt adds protein, and it’s super easy to make – especially since peaches are everywhere right now.
In fact, we were lucky enough to have a big box of peaches delivered to our office the other day. I brought so many home that I ended up having to cut some up and freeze them! Then, when my freezer was overflowing with frozen bananas, berries and peaches, I decided to start making smoothies. I made this one several times last week.
PS: As if you needed one more reason to make this, August is National Peach Month. Drink up!
Strawberry Peach Smoothie
- 1 peach
- 3-6 strawberries
- 1 banana
- 1 cup 0% Greek yogurt
- Ice + honey to taste
Place all ingredients in the blender and mix. I typically use frozen fruit, but you can use fresh (you’ll just need to add more ice for texture).
