Did you know that today is National Girlfriends Day? It is! This campaign is all about getting together with your girlfriends to work together to be a healthier you!!
I am on a mission to a healthier me, so it only seems fitting that I bring my girlfriends along for the ride right?
The crew at Oscar Insurance has created this fun graphic for you to use a guideline of checkups women need to make their health a priority. So grab your girlfriends and do this together!!
As a mother, I now stop to think about how important it is for me to get early detection of anything. I want to be here for my family and for our future. I’ve two aunts who are breast cancer survivors, my family has a history of diabetes and high blood pressure. I want to help to make a change to those, and start preventative care!
We have been working so hard this summer to healthier eating. Greg and I took part in a two week sugar detox at the beginning of summer, and I haven’t felt that great in a long time. So we have been implementing it in the whole family, slowly. HA!
In an effort to get everyone eating more fruits and veggies, I’ve whipped up a fun fruit dip to take with us to the fair this weekend. If we have something healthier to eat as an option to fair food, we can stay on track.
I know this has some sugar in it, but it’s still getting us the fruits we need!!
I am going with an old favorite here and adding something new to it. I grabbed some strawberry cream cheese for today’s to add just a bit more of a kick to the dip! It’s sooo yummy!!
1 Container Marshmallow Crème
1 Container Strawberry Cream Cheese
Fruits of choice.
I stuck them in my KitchenAid blender and let them whip for a bit, making sure that I got all the marshmallow crème mixed up well.
In the meantime, I cut up some apples and pears to have to dip in.
I served them all up on my vintage Fiesta ware plates and bowls, and they were ready for a fun snack.
I’m excited to be enjoying these over the greasy fried foods of fair this weekend. Don’t get me wrong, I’m going to enjoy a few things, but I’ve felt the yucky-ness come back when I resort to too much fast foods.
I also hope that you can take some time to review the graphic above and maybe share it with your girlfriends. Now it that time to take your health into your own hands.
