I don’t know about you, but life hasn’t slowed down simply because it’s the new year. While my health and fitness goals continue to be at an all time high, since my labral tear injury, the busy schedule still persists. We are still running around, I’m still looking for healthy meal ideas….and yet, I’m still running out of hours in a day. A solution came in my inbox though, and I can’t wait to share it!

A couple of my blogger friends have shared pictures about their ongoing experiences with Tropical Smoothie Cafe and I was thrilled to find out that we have a few locations within 20 minutes of me. WHAT!! I never knew that, and that’s my own fault, but I can’t wait to check them out. I mean, after all, look….Tropical Smoothie CafeWhen I started doing my research, I didn’t know that they were MORE than just smoothies. My husband told me about sandwiches, flatbreads and wraps they offered as well. YUMMO upon reading their menu!Tropical Smoothie Cafe

My family absolutely loves making smoothies. My girls would each them every day, to be honest with you! And think of the control you have of the food you are investing when you make it yourself. You can control the calories, the fat, the go’s…and on and on. Great benefits if you ask me! And an easy way to stay on track with your health and fitness goals too.
