Summertime is here and with these beautiful, hot days I’ve been craving some big, fresh salads to enjoy while soaking up the sunshine! My husband absolutely loves Caprese salad, so I wanted to try to bring that rich Caprese taste and also make it full of fresh produce and big enough for a meal. My Summer Caprese Chopped Salad with Blackberries is full of fresh basil, tomatoes, mozzarella, cucumbers, spinach, and juicy blackberries all enrobed in a citrus-balsamic dressing. Trust me, this salad recipe will be the perfect summer staple that everyone will enjoy!
Oh My Word! Let me just say that who knew carrots could be so good for breakfast?! Seriously, these Carrot Cake Overnight Oats are my current obsession. The combination of shredded carrots, sweet raisins, spicy cinnamon, and creamy vanilla will make you feel like you’re having dessert for breakfast (but with none of the guilt)!
The weather is warming up and quite frankly, these hot mornings make me want it to be summer already! Waking up early and the sun already shining bright makes me crave to just pack the kiddos in the car and head to the beach. Unfortunately, we are currently not living even close to any ocean, so I’m just going to have to pretend I’m at the beach instead. My Pineapple Coconut Overnight Oats are a delicious combination of rich and creamy coconut milk oats, shredded coconut, vibrant pineapple, and topped with crisp toasted coconut that will make any morning feel like you’re waking up on a tropical beach!
Chia pudding has become a staple in our house. Packed with health benefits like omega-3’s, fiber, and protein. It’s the perfect breakfast or snack to keep you full, and even better it’s super simple to make! I love using this chia pudding recipe as a base and getting creative by adding different toppings, fruits, and quite honestly anything I’m actually craving at the moment (like chocolate, yum)!
If you’ve ever seen a desert sunrise, you know it’s quite a spectacular sight. The gorgeous array of colors that come together to wish you “good morning!” are always breathtaking. I emulated my memories of watching the sun rise in the desert with my Desert Sunrise Chia Pudding Parfait. The layers of polka dotted chia pudding, golden pineapple, bright orange tangerine, and red strawberry will make you feel like you’re in the desert enjoying the beautiful morning dawn!
