Ways to Stay Active in the Summer with Lorissa’s Kitchen

Hey guys! I am super excited to announce a new FFF partnership with Lorissa’s Kitchen.

What’s the low down on Lorissa’s and why do I choose this premium protein snack over all other jerky?
  • They source their meat from 100% grass-fed beef, antibiotic-free chicken and responsibly raised pork.
  • No added growth hormones or preservatives
  • 11g protein per serving
  • Gluten-free
  • Sealed for freshness, meaning I can take it anywhere!
  • Most importantly: It’s FLIPPING DELISH
You know me…I’m a sweet tooth girl. Well, I CRAVE this savory stuff. Their flavor variations are UNREAL: Korean BBQ, Ginger Teriyaki, Sweet Chili, and Szechuan Peppercorn. My personal fav is the Korean BBQ. HUBBA HUBBA.

Today I wanted to talk about some ways I’m incorporating physical activity into my summer routine (other than working out, of course). When the sun is shining and temperature is warm, I feel like a whole new person in comparison to the winter months. I also feel SO MUCH HUNGRIER and I think it’s because I genuinely move my body more during the summertime. What does this mean? I NEED MORE SNACKS. Snacks that note only taste good, but that are healthy! ie: Lorissa’s Kitchen.

Walk the Lake 

This is my #1 favorite physical activity to incorporate into my busy schedule during the summer. Minneapolis is called the city of lakes because there’s actually a chain of 4 lakes that run right through the city! I live about 1/2 mile from Lake Calhoun and a mile from Lake Harriet…so I’d say lake walking is easy access for me. Calhoun and Harriet are both 3 miles long so it’s the most perfect 60 minute break I will have all day. Here’s a photo from last week’s run around Lake Calhoun.

Active Travel

I haven’t really announced this yet, but Man Candy and I are headed to Scandinavia in August for 16 days to travel Norway, Copenhagen, and Iceland! Most of our travel plans so far incorporate lots of hiking and city walking. In my opinion, you see the best sites on foot! I’ve been to Europe before, but never to Scandinavia, so I’m really excited to explore new territory. Plus, we will be visiting one of our good friends from high school, Lars, who lives in Bergen. WOOT.

Bike > Car 

This is a new one for me! I finally caved and jumped on the bike scene here in Minnesota. Minneapolis was rated the most bike-able city in America a couple of years ago. That’s right, my city is built for biking and I can hardly wait take my bike out for the first ride of the summer! I live about 1/2 mile from The Greenway, our bike path system that will get you pretty much anywhere you need to go not on a road!

WALK EVERYWHERE

Bold statement? I think not! I really try and walk when I can. I live in a prime spot where I’m blocks from multiple grocery stores, a Target, coffee shops, and my gym! If not’s not raining, I say get more steps in. Plus- the fresh air is good for you!

State Parks

Lin and I both gave in last year and bought state park passes for our cars. I think it took about 5 single day passes for us to bite the bullet and realize WE LOVE STATE PARKS and that we need state park passes for our cars. We spend a lot of time at Linley’s Family’s river house on the St. Croix, which is actually in Wisconsin…thus one of us got a MN state park pass and the other got a WI state park pass. SCORE. Anyways- we love trail running and walking and just a fun fact for you- Lin stepped on a snake last year.
