As a dietitian, home cook, and enthusiast of all-things-delicious, I'm often asked, "so what do YOU eat?" Here's a blog to answer that very question! My hope is that you'll find (even just a little) inspiration from some of my favorite recipes, restaurants, party-ideas and food musings for your own happy, healthy, food-loving lifestyle.

Summer Lovin' Smoothies

Nothing gets your day (or metabolism!) revved up quite like a  healthy breakfast. Finding a delicious, easy, and nutrition-packed solution is key. A few summers ago, I made the blender a summertime counter-top staple in order to easily whip up these tasty, healthy Greek yogurt fruit smoothies. Packed with protein from the yogurt, fiber from your fresh/frozen fruits of choice, and an added sweetness (without much sugar) from the coconut water--they're a light, tasty morning boost!

These summertime smoothies are great really any day or time of year. I find them to be a wonderful pre-brunch  breakfast. While I love meeting friends for brunch on the weekends, sometimes the meeting/dining time makes it more of an eggs-for-lunch situation than any resemblance of my "morning" meal. So I get started with a small smoothie to keep me from being overly hungry/cranky beforehand.

See below for one of my recipes, but get creative with whatever fruits are looking and smelling their best this summer!
