I may have gone a bit overboard on this morning’s fruit smoothie garnishes… But hey, the bigger the garnish the happier the tummy!

Today is my third day in a row adding veggies to my smoothies, and I’m loving every second of it.

Ingredients:
Pineapple
Strawberries
Peaches
Orange pineapple banana juice
Carrots
Ice

Blend and enjoy!

Don’t worry, to my surprise, I couldn’t even taste the carrots 🙂 Such a great way to sneak some extra nutrients into your day!

Baked Seasoned Sweet Corn- a sweet summer favorite

image

Corn is one of my favorite summer vegetables, because it’s easy to prepare (especially for a summer picnics), and tastes great on a hot summer day!

You can really play with the spices you use on your corn and customize it for your tastes buds. I kept it simple using pepper and oregeno, which really made my tongue happy. Sometimes I like to get a little spicy, so I’ll add a bit of cayenne pepper too.

Pre-preparing tip:
Since I have a crazy busy schedule, I like to pre-prepare a few pieces of corn and bake them all at once. Then, the corns that I don’t eat, I kwwp them wrapped in the tin foil and put it in the fridge. When I’m ready to eat them, I pop one in the oven for only 5 mins, and it turns into a quick and easy snack!
