Easy Weight Loss Breakfast Idea: Acai Bowl

This recipe is perfect for anyone who is busy! Just throw a few ingredients in the blender and go! BONUS: I have included a code for 3 FREE smoothies from Daily Harvest!

I’ve been buying açaí bowls from local specialty restaurants or from the grocery store for the last year. This is a perfect breakfast or lunch option for someone who is trying to lose weight. I love these bowls! They are packed full of goodness and you can really make it your own! One thing I don’t like? The cost & not knowing exactly what is going into what I’m eating. It adds up if you buy these a few times a week or even once a week so I figured why not start making my own?!

Whip up an easy breakfast to help lose weight! #weightloss #acaibowl #breakfastideas #fitfam

The only thing I had to buy for this was the açaí. A friend recommended this brand from amazon and I love it! It has zero sugar and it tastes amazing! It doesn’t take much either. I think what I ordered should last me a few months! For more healthy breakfast ideas you can click this link.

Here is the recipe I use for mine:

-1 tbsp of açaí (you can use less but I don’t recommend more)

-Vanilla protein powder (I love this brand or this one!)

-Splash of almond milk (or whatever milk you prefer)

-Handful of ice

-Half to whole banana (I happened to have a very ripe banana so I used it all)

-Feel free to add extras! Fresh blueberries, mango, pineapple, strawberries. Get adventurous.

Blend it UP!

Topping Ideas:

-Coconut, Cocoa nibbles, strawberries, blueberries, chia seed, granola, and more!

The possibilities are truly endless and it’s almost like a little smoothie in a bowl! So filling and full of so much goodness.

Round up of my top back to school style picks #stylepicks #backtoschool

Tis’ the season for back to school! School actually does not start here in NY for about 4 more weeks. I always loved back to school shopping as a kid, everything from pencils & notebooks to the clothes & shoes got me excited. I actually always saved my school clothes until the week of school (one must NOT wear prior to the start of school!!)

Kalahari Resort: The Perfect Family Staycation

Planning a family trip? Kalahari makes the perfect family getaway!

We recently had the opportunity to be hosted by Kalahari Resorts in The Poconos and had the best time! This resort made the perfect “staycation” for us and it will for you as well. They have multiple resorts, all boasting HUGE indoor/outdoor water parks, throughout the country. The Poconos was only about 2.5 hours from our home and our kids are at the perfect age that the car ride wasn’t too bad.

We told the kids ahead of time that we were going and they could NOT have been more excited. You can read the post about our surprise Disney themed scavenger hunt HERE!  We loved getting the Kalahari Surprise Box in the mail; it really made the trip more special for them because they had such cute keepsakes!

I knew we wanted to arrive early on Sunday because we were only staying one night; I wanted to take FULL advantage of the water park both days. Kalahari is kind enough to let you use the park the day you check in starting at 9:30AM (check in is typically around 4PM) and you can also use the park the entire day of your checkout day as well!

The kids headed straight to the outdoor water park first. We were lucky enough to visit during “National Water Park” weekend and there were so many fun activities planned. Kalahari has amazing events planned year round; we just got lucky planning our visit during this time! You can find a full list of their daily offered events by heading to their website and entering in specific dates of your stay.

In addition to the water parks, Kellan & Marley loved the indoor bowling, the arcade, mini golf and all the food offered on the property. The property is huge and they even have a separate train ride you can book and an outdoor zip line course which I definitely want to check out on our next visit. There was honestly SO much to see and do that we did not have time to do it all. I can’t wait to go back and check out the outdoor mini golf that is being built, their spa and their fitness center!

We stayed in the “Desert Room” and it was perfect for the four of us. The couch pulled out to a bed and Kellan claimed that as his. We requested a crib for Marley and the staff kindly sent one right up to us. Everyone got a great night’s rest after the fun day at the water park.

One thing I felt that was nice about Kalahari for our children’s ages was that they offered many different water areas for younger children. In similar theme parks or water parks, younger children are typically only getting one area to play in. Not the case at Kalahari! We had PLENTY of areas, tons of open tables and lots of options if the kids grew bored on certain areas. I honestly think they could’ve spent an entire week at Kalahari and not grown bored. I loved that the property really thought of everything for families needs. There was shopping at our finger tips, plenty of breakfast, lunch and dinner options and even a spot to grab a treat when the day ended! We look forward to our next visit to Kalahari. We are hoping to make it a tradition with the kids and visit a few times a year because we had SO much fun.

Planning an end of summer trip? Kalahari Indoor Water Park makes the perfect family trip!
