fro yo breakfast bars  –> customizable and the perfect portable breakfast.


strawberry smoothie –> perfect for breakfast, snack or even dinner.

Yummy easy fruit salad –> have a picnic to go to? Make this easy fruit salad with 1 secret ingredient.


Fruit quinoa salad –> perfect side salad to go with whatever you are grilling.


sweet pork tacos –> don’t turn on the oven – too hot! Use your crockpot and make these sweet pork tacos – best served in a salad!


fruit pizza –> no words are needed.

    Oh man, that French toast looks amazing, and so does that fruit and quinoa salad!
    Every summer I become obsessed with caprese salads. Fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden definitely make it impossible not to make them!

  5. Send those Special K Bars my way!!! No, I’m not kidding 😉 And that lemonade looks so so so refreshing. I’m going to have to mix some of that up for the pool this summer!
