Holiday Hacks: 4 Hacks For the Outdoors

With the Fourth of July rapidly approaching, it’s time to start thinking about how you want to enjoy the holiday. If you’re planning to spend the day outside like most people, you’ll need to plan for a hot day in the sun. We’ve got all of the holiday hacks you need to make your Independence Day celebration a success, from fending off a hangover to cooling off without tons of sugar and carbs. It’s possible to keep up with your health and fitness goals and enjoy the festivities at the same time with these four hacks below!

Stay Hydrated With Electrolytes

Spending the holiday out in the sun, regardless of whether you’re at the beach or by the pool, will quickly zap your body of the electrolytes it needs to stay hydrated. If you add alcohol into the mix, you’re in the middle of a hangover waiting to happen as a result of dehydration. The best way to stay hydrated is to make a delicious drink that keeps you feeling festive but also provides the hydration you need. Enter: the hydrated Arnold Palmer. Made with unsweetened iced tea and a packet of Orgain Lemon Lime Hydro Boost, you’ll replenish electrolytes and boost your hydration all in one delicious beverage that even the kids will enjoy.

Chill Out With Organic Protein Ice Cream Bars

Ice cream bars are pretty much a Fourth of July staple, but that doesn’t mean you have to consume tons of artificial flavors and excess sugar. These strawberry shortcake protein ice cream bars have the patriotism nailed down being red and white, taste like the strawberry shortcake bars of your youth, and are made with organic ingredients to boot. Plan ahead by making them the day before your celebration. You’ll need coconut yogurt, vanilla extract, agave, salt, strawberries & cream protein powder, slivered almonds, freeze-dried strawberries, and vegan butter.

Master the Mocktail

Whether you’re trying to stay on track with your health and fitness goals or just don’t drink alcohol, you don’t have to be stuck with boring, unfestive drinks on the Fourth of July. This mango sangria spritzer ditches the alcohol but packs in plenty of flavor and some extra electrolytes, too! Whip up a batch before your holiday event by adding a lemon, lime, orange, red apple, mango, some water, and Hydro Boost to a pitcher, and let the flavors infuse for 3 hours. Simply add chilled sparkling water when you’re ready to serve, then enjoy!

Cool Off With Collagen

Planning on making Jell-O for your holiday celebration? Why not support radiant skin, hair, and nails, and cool off at the same time? These watermelon collagen cubes take collagen peptides, chopped seedless watermelon, sugar-free sweetener, fresh lime juice, unflavored gelatin powder, and mint leaves and combine for a seriously refreshing summer treat. Make the night before for a stress free morning!
