Fennel, Strawberry & Pistachio Salad

This Fennel, Strawberry & Pistachio Salad is the ultimate spring/summer salad. Bring this light and crunchy side dish to your next outdoor picnic.

Happy June!! May flew by just as fast as the other months, but I’m OK with that as this means summer is right around the corner. Bring on the BBQs and late night summer walks.

With the warmer (and muggy) weather hanging around, I’ve been craving light and crunchy foods. You know those brutal summer days when all you want to eat is a huge bowl of juicy, cold fruit? Well, that’s kind of how I’ve been feeling lately, although the weather has been much more tolerable. This Fennel, Strawberry & Pistachio Salad was exactly what I needed.

Maple Plum Granola

A simple granola recipe that has become a kitchen essential. This {gluten-free} Maple Plum Granola can be enjoyed with milk, yogurt, smoothies and definitely by the handful.

How is it already nearing the end of May?? I swear it felt like I had just posted last month’s Recipe Redux post. No complaints though :)

This month’s theme has us sharing our DIY Kitchen Essentials – staples that have been previously purchased but are now made from scratch. I have a few healthy basics that I like to stock the pantry with but today, it’s all about homemade granola: Maple Plum Granola.

I can’t even think about drinking a cold smoothie in the middle of winter, it won’t happen. But as soon as warmer weather stays around, I am back on the smoothie train. I am highly enjoying smoothie bowls for a change, such as this Strawberry Probiotic Smoothie Bowl, topped with nuts or some granola. If you’re in a time crunch or need something nourishing on the go, look no further than this Green Energizing Smoothie.

Disclosure: GoodBelly kindly provided me with products to review, I was not compensated for my time. As always, all opinions remain my own.

I am a huge advocate for probiotics. Of course, I always recommend getting probiotics through consumption of whole foods first (yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, miso, tempeh, etc.), but there are exceptions where I feel taking a supplement may be necessary. I myself take a probiotic everyday as I treat some GI issues. But since a little extra won’t hurt, this is where GoodBelly comes in :)
