How to Plan(t) Your Day for Maximum Health and Wellness

Posted by: Heather Ehresman

As much as I tried to maintain my healthy eating habits this past spring, my best intentions turned into extra snacking and a few too many curbside pickups at my favorite restaurants.

Sound familiar? COVID-19 changed everything about our lives, especially what and how we eat.

Before we dive into winter and the nasty flu bugs that may be lurking, I am making it a priority to improve my overall health. First on my list? Refreshing my weekly meal plans with the most important meal of all—breakfast.  

A resolution to eat healthier sounds easy, until you are faced with planning three meals a day for a family that is working, studying, and living 24/7 at home! That’s why I love using Hush & Hush’s PlantYourDay Protein Powder to streamline meals and make healthy eating easy. 

I start my morning off with a protein shake using the PlantYourDay powder. My favorite recipe is the Sweet ‘Nana Shake. It tastes delicious and it’s packed with organic pumpkin protein, which means it fills me up until lunch. An easy shake is a great way to set me up for a full day of healthy eating. 

On days where I have a little more time to prepare breakfast, Hush & Hush has got me covered. My kids love when I use the PlantYourDay Protein powder to make “Hushcakes,” which taste just like pancakes but are so much more nutritious. If it’s the weekend, I show a little extra love and serve them with syrup and cocoa nibs. And my kids never know that their pancake breakfast also included nutrients from leafy greens!  

This winter, there are a lot of options you can try to stay healthy—getting more sleep, managing stress, getting exercise, drinking fluids, eating nutritious foods, and consistently taking your beauty supplements. Starting the day off with a healthy breakfast helps me get a good start on the day so I can try even more healthy habits. 

Enjoy!
