The warm weather encourages us to eat fresher and clean up our diet. Today on ABC’s Lowcountry Live, I shared some delicious, UNIQUE ways to enjoy more fruits and veggies in every meal this summer!
Your go-to mini meal of the summer
These are the ULTIMATE grab and go mini-meal of summer – smoothies! Get creative with fresh vegetables, fruits and nut milks to build satisfying smoothies that are refreshing, delicious and nutritious.
Dried fruit is an excellent on-the-go snack. I recommend pairing with nuts or cheese for some protein for a balanced snack. Besides their fiber content, which supports digestion, dried fruit provides vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Sneak veggies into your kids favorite foods
It’s not summer without hamburgers, hotdogs and fries! Of course they need flavor so I brought ketchup, BBQ sauce and a Sriracha-like sauce naturally sweetened with VEGETABLES.
Summer desserts need fruit – especially strawberries
Fruit is a summer dessert staple – strawberries being one of them. I shared my Strawberry Oat Crumble Squares earlier this week which are made with fresh strawberries and low sugar strawberry fruit spreads – besides your PB and J sandwiches – you can use this to make salad dressings, cocktails and of course, baked goods like scones and muffins.
