Summer is a great time to lighten up your meals. Fresh vegetables and fruit are abundant in farmers markets and backyard gardens. I've rounded up a bunch of light recipes you can make over and over again all throughout the summer.
Do you need a way to get more veggies into your kids? This salad is it. It's like eating the rainbow!
Colorful Rainbow Pop
These pops are so delicious. They are also a great way to get lots of fruit, fiber, and fluids into your kids on hot summer days. Mix and match with any fruits you have on hand.
These are so good! They are so quick to make it, it will take you longer to gather the ingredients than to make it.
Muesli (Easiest Breakfast Ever)
Muesli is a nutritious and delicious way to start those hot summer days. Add your favorite toppings and spices.
Peach Pizza Pie
Peach pizza is a great way to serve up those ripe summer peaches in new and unique way. Sweet, tangy, and light.
The first time I tasted grilled fish with lemon I was hooked (pun intended). It's so tender, light, and satisfying.
Sandwich on a Stick
These deconstructed sandwiches are a fun way to serve up sandwiches for a change on summer lunches.
These chicken skewers make a great light summer dinner. Make lots of them and have leftovers to put in salads or sandwiches the next day.
