If you are someone who is ready to celebrate National Camping Month, then June is your month!
Let’s be clear though; I don’t know the first thing about what you need to take on a camping trip! I’m not a fan of camping (no matter how many times my husband tries to convince me otherwise). I prefer to have running water, electricity, and a real bed.
Here are some must-haves (including a trustworthy Maglite Flashlight) that even a never-camper like me would suggest taking on your adventure:
No matter how much time has passed, you’ll always remember the name of your favorite teacher. This week is #TeacherAppreciationWeek, a week where all teachers near and far deserve to be recognized for all of their hard work throughout the year (no matter if it’s in-person or distance-learning!).
One gift they would carry around wherever they go is a custom-printed travel tumbler. Take your pick from any of these, you can’t go wrong!
Yeah, yeah, yeah… we’ve all been grumbling about wanting to get back to a normal life. But even though today is National Picnic Day, we can still have fun. Even the smallest of outdoor spaces-or just your living room- can accommodate a cozy little picnic. Here are the essential items and travel tumblers that you’ll need to have a celebratory picnic:
How many days a week do you get takeout for lunch?
How often do you pack your lunch?
Getting takeout is definitely the easier option- no meal prep or planning required, no dishes to do later, and more choices. But it is more expensive, and can definitely tempt you to eat foods that you should probably avoid.
Today is #PackYourLunchDay, a day where you can take the first step towards packing your lunch on a more regular basis, and becoming more mindful about what you eat. Once you start prepping your own meals, it is so easy to eat healthier.
Some easy things to pack beyond the boring ol’ sandwich:
Endless types of salads- pack them full of protein!
Rice/grain bowls- add protein and veggies
Soups & stews
Here are the necessary travel tumblers and Thermos items to help pack your yummy lunch:
For Your Food- keeps it hot for up to 9 hrs or cold up to 14 hrs & comes with a built-in spoon!
For Your Water-
For your post-lunch caffeine break- keeps drinks hot for 7 hours-
Did you make a New Year’s resolution to eat healthier? One way to keep this promise up all year long is to start drinking healthy, detoxifying green juices. They will give you much needed nutrients and energy to keep you going all day long.
Top ingredients to include in your recipe:
Dark leafy greens: Spinach or kale
Veggies: Cucumber, celery
Fruits: green apples, avocado
Spice it up with: Lime, ginger, jalapeno
Your first jab at making a green juice might not be perfect, so play with the proportions of the ingredients to make the flavor how you like it. Or, if you don’t want to invest in a juicer, go ahead and grab a freshly made bottle at your local grocery store or coffee shop. Once you find a recipe you like, keep it cold in any of these travel tumblers and go about your day feeling refreshed and healthy!
Do you like bubbly drinks? Do you like caffeine as well? Then today is your lucky day- it’s National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day. I bet you’re thinking the best drink to fill up your travel mug today is just some good ol’ soda, or perhaps a bubbly energy drink. But did you know that you can buy or make your own coffee soda?
A few companies out there make sparkling coffee, also called coffee soda. They’re basically just coffee infused with CO2, and perhaps a little sugar or citrus juice. Or you can do a little experiment at home today- mix 5 oz seltzer water, 2 oz espresso, and 2 oz of fresh OJ.
Whichever drink you choose today, don’t forget to put it in your trusty travel mug to get you from home to work, and all the places in between.
