Grilled Zucchini and Summer Squash Stacks with melted mozzarella cheese!

What can I say, I’ve created the PERFECT appetizer!

This slightly spicy, low-cal dish is great for parties, lunches or just a quick snack on a summer day. I had a bunch of squashes and zucchini left over from our “southern party” last weekend, so I threw them together and created Grilled Zucchini and Summer Squash Stacks!

To put a fun little spin on it, I sauteed the veggies in Balsamic Vinaigrette instead of oil and it came out GREAT.

Get out of your comfort zone- Disney Fitspiration!

I was watching Mulan this morning while making my morning fruit smoothies, and I totally got inspired by this scene!

If Mulan can climb a pole with two huge penny looking weights, we can DEFINITELY push ourselves out of our comfort zones on the next few reps of push ups!

Getting out of your comfort zone is how you’ll start seeing changes in your body. Pushing yourself beyond what your body is used to, is how the tone and definition will begin to appear. If you never try anything new, and always stick to your same routines, chances are- your body will stay the same too.

Want to see change? Work for it.

Classy Cornbread

I’m calling this beauty “classy cornbread” because of the adorable pink flowers I tossed in. My boyfriend Bryan picked them for me, I just couldn’t resist 🙂

Plus, I’m really into food-ography lately so it was perfect!

Seriously, so delicious! Bryan and I made cornbread for my best friend and I’s “Southern Style Hangout” yesterday. It was a big hit, and an awesome snack.

How To Make a Green Smoothie! Vegetarians, this is especially for you :)

green

I really need to start making more green smoothies!

I’ve got the morning fruit smoothie routine down to a science, but I’m having a hard time getting some green veggies in there. Definitely going to use this on this morning’s smoothie. Being a life-long vegetarian, I need all the green veggies I can get.

Not to mention, I just got some AWESOME green tea lemonade from a health food store by my house that I can’t WAIT to try. It’ll be a perfect addition to a green smoothie.

I’ll post the recipe that I come up with later today 🙂

  • Sliced cucumber
  • Pineapple
  • Guava juice
  • Watermelon juice
  • Ice
  • 3 scoops protein powder

Blend, add a cute garnish and enjoy!

Gorgonzola garlic salad

You haven’t had a true salad until you’ve tasted this one. I know I know I know what you’re thinking; …garlic and pears??? EW!

WRONG! Think again. The savory flavors of the roasted garlic vinaigrette, go astonishingly well with the sweet Anjou pears.

This salad is quick, fresh and a delight side to any main course, or a perfect lunch all on its own 🙂

Ps oh my gosh you guys, these pictures turned out so great!! I’m getting so much better with my food photography!
