Happy Monday! It’s been a while since I shared anything with you – apologies, there are exciting things going on over here. If you follow me on Insta you may have heard that I’m moving to the big apple for a wonderful new job opportunity. I could not be any more thrilled and blessed. I am a huge advocate for following your dreams and doing what makes you happy, because life is too short to be anything but. So, I am currently packing up my things, apartment searching like a crazy lady, trying to sell my car and doing last minute errands. It’s a whirlwind of both crazy and relief
I have been eating some really amazing eats lately – there have been more convenient and random meals in the past few days but hey, as long as you make healthier choices and try to keep it balanced, a little convenience never hurt anybody, right? I thought I would share some “recent eats” with you all since I haven’t posted one in forever! Enjoy!
If you haven’t tried Cooking Light’s two-ingredient sweet potato pancakes, do yourselves a favor and get on that STAT. So easy, nutritious and satisfying – kept me full for hours! I topped mine with PB, fresh figs and blueberries.
Grilled Peach Salad screams summer on a plate. Juicy, grilled white flesh peaches, ricotta salata, mint and sunflower seeds bring this vibrant and refreshing salad to life.
I am overjoyed with the bounty of fresh, seasonal produce at the farmers market currently. From the sweetest cherries to crispy zucchini, summer produce is on fire. Not only do I love supporting local farmers, but the farmers market is the place for the best-tasting, freshest seasonal produce. I strongly urge you to eat in season as much as possible and take full advantage of the flavors (it’s also cheaper to buy in-season).
Something new that I have tried out this year is growing tomato plants! These cherry tomato and beefsteak tomato plants were purchased from the market and I am so happy to see them growing and flourishing! Those cherry tomatoes are sweet and so GOOD…success!
These Mini Oat Muffins are a delightful, convenient snack or addition to breakfast. Take these on the go, bring to work, or enjoy with coffee/tea at home. These Gluten-free and vegan muffins also make for a perfect road trip snack.
All things miniature are automatically better, agreed? Well, definitely cuter and kid-friendly! I wanted a simple and straightforward oat muffin because if you haven’t noticed by now, I love my oats. These Mini Oat Muffins are delicious on their own, or you can go wild and slap some jam or nut butter on them.
