2023 has been wellness obsessed with trends like the “clean girl” aesthetic and sober curiosity taking over; it’s time to talk summer socializing. Say hello to the new era of health-conscious hosting with the reinvented fit-nic! Health and wellness expert Caleigh Rykiss has created a guilt-free picnic menu that will impress your guests and leave them feeling fueled and energized versus lethargic and lazy.
Say goodbye to unhealthy picnic snacks like chips and popcorn and invest just 10 minutes of prep to create fun and mouthwatering snacks filled with healthy fats, protein, and nutrients.
The key is clean ingredients. Choose fresh and seasonal produce and read your labels for everything else! Avoid sugars, unhealthy oils and ingredients like bean gum and sorbic acid which are artificial fillers and additives and very unhealthy.
This is why Tre Stelle’s new cream cheeses are a staple on Caleigh’s fit-nic menu. The original is made with just four all-natural ingredients making it the cleanest and creamiest cream cheese on the market. You’ll know when you see the water droplet on the top, which is a sign it’s all fresh with no fillers. Caleigh uses it as the perfect complement to both sweet and savoury healthy snacks.
