Bits & Bites_7.12.14

Happy weekend, everyone! I'm heading off to boxing soon (I'm finally back - yay!) and then the beach with the girls! Can't wait! It's another beeeaauuuutiful weekend! 

But first, here's bits & bites of the week!


Easy dinner on a 90 degree day.... Simple caprese with 2 hard boiled eggs.

This was another 90+ humid day where I refused to put on the oven or even the stove.  This was so easy and so delish: homemade hummus, caprese with feta, cento olive oil tuna, olives, and artichokes. It was actually extremely filling. (My mom's hummus recipe: here)

This smoothie was made for breakfast last week... (strawberries, banana, ground flax, chia, water, cinnamon). Rob thought he'd be funny by sticking a bunny in it...........

Saturday morning breakfast; ezekial english muffin, avo, fresh local strawberries, and scrambled eggs. This was actually Rob's plate... min was sized down a little. 

Quick caprese with feta and avo (noticing a trend of my favorite summer dish?). I am pretty sure I ate my fav Ian's fish sticks with this.

Salad from whole foods: spinach, quinioa, shredded beats, olives, sweet potato, green chickpea cake, edamame, olive oil, and lemon juice.

Another lunch: GMO free popcorn, organic cottage cheese with pineapple and blueberries.

Hope that gives you some good ideas - especially for cooking in the hot weather!
