Food Bloggers Share 47 Ways to Stay Fit and Fueled in Summer!



Let me guess. You are just like me. You love food. And eating. And fueling yourself with healthy-delicious foods. Smoothies. Colors, fruity flavors, frosty bliss. You love a good baking sesh as a treat. Cookies, chocolate, vanilla. Comfort sweets. You are a healthy snack king or queen. Hummus, energy bars, fresh fruit bowls, kale chips. And of course dinnertime, you create a feast and end your day on a satisfying note. You may even snap photos of your amazing eats on your phone.

Well, if any of that sounds familiar, you are one step away from knowing what it feels like to be a food blogger. Constantly surrounded by your favorite foods, sharing them, embracing deliciousness and loving every minute of it. So with all this eating and fueling, it is so important to balance things out and stay active!

Food Fitness Balance. So I decided to ask my food blogger friends, who I know are experts in food/fitness balance. I asked them what they do in summertime to stay active and fueled up. Their responses are awesome! From paddle boarding, to cat dance parties, fun runs, gardening and magical hiking sessions. These fitness ideas greatly inspired me, and I hope they will inspire you as well..

Roasted Pepper Hummus, Basil, Caramelized Onion Skillet Sandwich


One of my favorite things about summertime: beach picnics! And that usually means waking early, preparing a big basket of sandwiches, snacks, fresh fruit, veggies and drinks - then heading out towards the sea to find a lovely spot in the sun. Sinking a beach umbrella into the lush white sand and listening to those beautifully loud California waves crash for hours on end as white and grey seagulls skim the sea mist waves and try to steal nibbles of our feast.

And today's recipe is a sandwich that is packed with savory, smoky, sweet flavors. Get my recipe for my Spicy Roasted Pepper Hummus + my Roasted Pepper Hummus Caramelized Onion Basil Skillet Sandwich. Plus enter for a chance to win a Summer Survival Kit from Mezzetta.
