National Best Friends Day!! Everything is Better Together!
Romy & Michelle…Monica & Rachel…Thelma & Louise…Cher & Dionne…PB&J! In honor of National Best Friends Day today, we’re talking all about classic pairs that stand the test of the time. These food combos go together like, well, K&K ;) And we put our own TIU spin on them to make them TIU Nutrition Plan approved and extra special!
And don’t forget to give your girlfriends a call today to tell them how much they mean to you. A best girlfriend is a gift we should all celebrate today ~ and every day! We’ve seen so many new, amazing friendships flourish within the community. TIU meetups all across the world are bringing beautiful babes together. It’s everything we imagined when we created this community and more! We feel so lucky to have each other and this beautiful community of girlfriends!
Dynamic Food Duos
This combo always makes us think of lunches at school! Eating a small amount of nuts each day delivers fiber, protein, and antioxidants. And peanut butter helps boost your metabolism and keeps you feeling satisfied. We upgraded this BFF pairing with our Blueberry, Peanut Butter & Fig Smoothie.
Caramel + Apples
We love pairing a crisp apple with this Date “Caramel” recipe. It’s packed with rich, gooey caramel without refined sugars. These foods are great on their own, but together they’re the ultimate TIU treat!
Guac + Chips
Living in California, we always share this snack with girlfriends! All you need is THIS TIU approved Marg to make it the perfect happy hour snack! If you’re craving this food combo, try our totally delish Sweet Potato Nacho recipe starring our fave guac recipe. Avocados contain essential nutrients like monounsaturated fatty acids, which deliver major heart-healthy perks. Give us the guac!
Banana + Tone It Up Protein
Tone It Up Protein is so delicious when blended with bananas for smoothies, smoothies bowls, and baked treats. We love the muscle-soothing effects of potassium from banana mixed with the lasting energy from Tone It Up Protein. It makes for a dreamy post-workout treat. Check out our favorite recipes like the Superfood Chocolate Breakfast Bowl and Chocolate Banana Bread.
Tomatoes + Basil
We use the tomato-basil combo in tons of different TIU recipes, like the Baked Italian Eggs and Zucchini Pasta with Pesto & Sundried Tomatoes. Tomatoes contain the powerful antioxidant lycopene, which keeps your skin looking fab!
Honey + Lemon
These two BFFs have amazing detoxing properties that will boost your metabolism while soothing common cold symptoms. This super delicious duo can be enjoyed in so many different ways, like our Lemon Honey Overnight Oats! Honey enhances the antioxidant properties of the lemon and makes this breakfast the perfect tangy treat.
Berries + Cream
Who doesn’t love a bowl of fresh berries with healthy coconut cream as their dessert? Berries are packed with heart-healthy and beautifying antioxidants. We recreated this classic dessert to be TIU approved. Try out the recipe here!
