Carley Dunphy, The Blendah Babes
CK Nutrition Editor
My name is Carley Dunphy and I am owner of The Blendah Babes. I live in Kingston with my husband Michael, our two sons, Roman (2 ½) & Ryder (8 months), and our new puppy Bowser J.
I created The Blendah Babes over three years ago because I wanted a healthy & organic power smoothie in my local area and couldn’t find it. The journey began selling smoothies out of a turquoise food truck at farmers markets, events & festivals around Boston and the South Shore.
Customers wanted a way to enjoy The Blendah Babes smoothies more regularly- so we packed up the truck and decided to package our premium product for the public. My Ready-to-Blend smoothies are prepared fresh & stored frozen for your convenience. They are filled with organic produce, vegan protein & super seeds making them the perfect choice for a meal replacement, snack, or pre/post work out shake.
Being a busy working mother I can see the need for my product now more than ever-…my smoothies are lifesavers somedays so we can get out the door quickly without sacrificing our nutrition. Just because you are short on time does not mean you need to settle for poor quality when it comes to your food.
I look forward to partnering with Clandestine Kitchen and sharing our passion for wellness + convenience to more families in our community.
Eating local is an important way to reduce our carbon footprint and support our local farms and communities. Locally grown food just tastes better...nutrient-dense and so incredibly fresh. When you know where your food comes from, you know more about your food and have a stronger connection to it.
I make sure to always get my daily servings in of fruit and vegetables but sometimes completely forget about my recommended intake of daily protein. Here are my top choices for incorporating more plant protein into your daily nutrition routine.
This Valentine's Smoothie Bowl recipe not only tastes amazing - it is loaded with vitamins and antioxidants from organic berries, healthy fats from nut butter and fiber & potassium from banana.
How can you return from vacation feeling as healthy as you did before you left? Stay active, stay hydrated, make healthy food choices and enjoy everything in moderation.
Anyone know what it is like to host a Thanksgiving dinner and not have a week’s worth of food leftover? If you are anything like me, you enjoy your Thanksgiving leftovers more than the actual meal itself.
Being a vegetable lover I automatically assumed that my children would love them as much as I do… boy was I wrong. Once my son could start communicating he would instantly let me know that anything green was not his thing. Over the past couple of years I have found some fool-proof ways to get my kids to eat vegetables … and actually enjoy them.
