Hi Happy Fam, Cassie here from @bodylovenutrition_

The weather is warming up, and we are loving more time outdoors and a chill end-of-year vibe. Things are wrapping up, and you may be nearing end-of-year celebrations and some well-deserved time off work (even if it’s only the public holidays). I’m bringing you all things summer, wrapped up in a sweet little parcel. Check out my summer produce guide, healthy snack ideas, hydration tips and summer recipe inspo below. Stay cool my loves!

Hello, summer! I’ve got you covered with this Aussie summer produce guide so you can buy in season, save some cash and stock up on the freshest options out there.

Girl, don’t underestimate the importance of staying hydrated, especially in the warmer months. Being well hydrated can help to regular our appetite, body temperature and to keep our organs functioning at our best. Adding in an electrolyte powder can help to give you that hydration boost. My favourite is the Happy Way watermelon electrolyte powder, it is delicious! Switching up the alcohol for some yummy alcohol-free mocktails and spritzes is also a great way to keep hydrated in the heat. My go-to is an alcohol-free raspberry and orange spritz.
