Easy Lunch Idea from Real Food Whole Life.

Easy Summer Lunch. I've been trying to eat more fish lately and it doesn't get much easier than canned salmon. For this simple summer lunch combine 1 can drained salmon, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, finely chopped sweet onion, and basil. Serve with veggies and sliced avocado.

Blackberry breakfast cookies in the making.

My Favorite Sous Chef. Cooking with Elle is one of my favorite activities. It keeps her busy and she's much more likely to try something new if she's had a hand in making it. Her most frequent request: cookies. No surprise there. We're working on testing blackberry breakfast cookies! Want to make sure you're first to know when the recipe is ready?

Simple breakfast idea from Real Food Whole Life.

Power Breakfast. I hosted (and catered!) my best friend's baby shower last weekend, which required a serious power breakfast pre-party. I went with an olive oil fried egg over gluten-free toast, sliced bell peppers, and half an avocado. I got her the cutest bib and burp set from Minky & Prickett, my baby shower gift go-to. I die over how cute her stuff is! 

Smoothie set up from Real Food Whole Life

Smoothie Set Up. I make my smoothie routine run smoothy (sorry, I had to!) by organizing and storing all the ingredients in mason jars on one shelf in the fridge. Having everything in one place make for faster prep and less mess in the mornings.

Summer grilling from Real Food Whole Life.

Summers are for Grilling. Sliced zucchini and sweet onion with lemon, thyme, and olive oil on the grill makes for a perfect side. Add to that a salad of tomato, cucumber, garlic, parsley, red wine vinegar and olive oil and you're all set. Yum!
