watermelon & avocado saladNo CommentsRead more
Summer is coming to an end but the weather has been absolutely perfect here on the east coast and I’m holding on as long as possible. This easy salad from Jeanine over at Love & Lemons is refreshing and packed full of cancer fighting antioxidants, healthy fats and a little kick from spicy peppers.

Happy first day of summer! Today I’m sharing a super simple, four ingredient, guilt-free ice pop recipe with no added sugar (approved by my 20 month old)! I have a Zoku quick pop maker at home which I absolutely love! It makes ice pops in less than ten minutes! This isn’t a sponsored post, I just think this product is great! You can use any pop maker of course, but sometimes you just don’t want to wait five hours for an ice pop!
Watermelon is a great source of antioxidant lycopene which has been shown to fight cancer. As I’ve mentioned before, berries (including raspberries) also have cancer-fighting antioxidants as well as loads of vitamin C. Currants and limes add even more vitamin C to the mix as well as lots of other nutrients! So you can feel really good about eating one (or two) of these!

There comes a time every September when I find myself in a food rut. Summer produce is still going strong but nights are cool and I crave change. Although autumn produce is starting to show up at the farmer’s market and in my garden, I’m not quite ready to let go of summer. Somehow I make the transition with warm summer soups and cold autumn smoothies. This thai spiced zucchini soup is perfect for cool summer nights. I like to spoon it over quinoa (a complete protein) to make it a filling meal. Making a large batch of quinoa in the beginning of the week allows for a quick add on to weeknight meals.
