3 Easy Ways To Have Kale On-The-Go

I just got back from traveling to New Orleans and San Francisco, and it definitely took a toll on my body. Did I mention that I pulled an all-nighter the night I flew to NOLA? Once Taylor and I checked into our hotel, we hit the ground running and dined at 20 restaurants in 3 days. Flying from San Francisco back to Austin, I took the red-eye flight and pulled another all-nighter. Needless to say, I was exhausted and my body showed it.

I immediately fueled up on my favorite Kale Cranberry Pepita Salad and Naked Juice‘s Kale Blazer – it has kale, cucumber, spinach, and celery! Packed with fiber, potassium, vitamin C and B6 content, kale is king of the garden and helps support heart health.

Here are my favorite kale meals for an on-the-go lifestyle! #kaleyeah

 

1. Roasted Veggie Quinoa Bowl

When not dining out in Austin, I like to keep my meals simple and clean at home. Mostly vegetarian, but definitely quick and easy with fast clean-up. This healthy roasted veggie quinoa and kale bowl has been my weekday go-to!

Fresh kale from Johnson’s Backyard Garden at the Texas Farmers’ Market at Mueller is the best!

2. Kale Cranberry Pepita Salad

Naked Juice

I’m obsessed with HEB’s Kale Cranberry Pepita Salad! Fresh kale tossed with cranberries, ginger, almonds & pumpkin seeds in an orange sesame vinaigrette.

I always keep a couple of these in my refrigerator as a snack and for on-the-go.

 

3. Naked Juice’s Kale Blazer

I’m always on-the-go whether it’s hopping between coffee shops and checking out new restaurants or traveling to new cities so it can be hard to find healthy options. Naked Juice’s Kale Blazer is packed with kale, cucumber, spinach, celery, oranges, apples, lemon, and a pinch of ginger. Only 100 calories, 2g of protein, and 35% Vitamin C. I toss it in my bag when I’m heading out the door and it keeps me hydrated and healthy throughout the day.

You can find Naked Juice Kale Blazer near you by searching their Where to Buy tool.

 

 Created in collaboration with Naked Juice, a brand I’ve loved for years!
