Let’s kick off the summer with some healthy, nutritious meals! Summer never tasted so good.
Well, summer is finally here and wasn’t it a really long winter? Or maybe that was just me since I was recovering from surgery. But I have good news, I am back to working out all the time and I feel great. There’s something about the warmer weather that makes you want to be more active. Take advantage of that feeling and get out and move!
Remember, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and weight loss (if desired) is 85% nutrition and 15% exercise. So now let’s talk about FOOD!
This week’s meal plan is packed with delicious recipes and tons of flavor.
Smoky Beet and Quinoa Veggie Burgers from greens & chocolate.
Prep Ahead: The veggie burger mixture can be made ahead of time.
Lemon Basil Pasta Salad in a Jar from Spoonful of Flavor.

Cajun Quinoa with Sausage and Kale from Cook Nourish Bliss.
