Did you know September is the perfect month for picnicking? With crisp sunny days in the forecast, it’s not too late to enjoy outdoor socializing while keeping your back-to-school health goals intact with a fit-nic!
Developed by Canadian health and wellness expert Caleigh Rykiss, the fit-nic puts a healthy twist on traditional picnicking with a health-conscious menu that doesn’t include traditional empty picnic foods like chips, cookies, or popcorn.
In 10 minutes, you can put together an impressive spread filled with healthy fats, protein, and nutrients. Caleigh loves to incorporate fresh, seasonal, and natural ingredients into her recipes which is why Tre Stelle’s new cream cheeses are a staple on her fit-nic menu. Made with just four all-natural ingredients, it is the cleanest and creamiest cream cheese on the market with a variety of flavours to elevate both sweet and savoury snacks.
Caleigh stresses reading your labels to avoid any artificial ingredients or stabilizers like bean gum or sorbic acids that are typically found in cream cheeses. Tre Stelle has a small water droplet on top which means there are no fillers – and it’s truly fresh!
