It’s hard to believe that it is already September! Always an exciting time of year, the month of September signifies change in our routine, as we transition from the dog days of summer to the always busy holiday season.
If you have kids (of any age), it also marks the return of the school routine; lazy summer mornings become hectic scrambles to get fed, clothed, and out the door in time. At the same time the seasons are changing, and the change in temperature and moisture can bring health deficiencies to the forefront.
Not to worry, as I have created a drink to help aid in that extra energy boost needed for this transitional time. The Back to School Milkshake!
Why is it so good for back to school? This back to school milkshake is full of healthy carbohydrates which is ideal for sustained energy. It also boasts a large amount of quality protein as well as the optimal amount of essential fatty acids. It is key for kids to get a good dose of healthy fats in the morning to help them with brain function, imagination, concentration and allow them to stay focus while in school.
