Seasonal

Apple Slice “Donuts”If you’re looking for a wonderful seasonal food activity to do with the kids, I highly recommend these apple "donuts"! Both Liv and Sawyer had the best time painting and decorating their apple slices. It’s great for fine motor skills and sparks creativity. All you need is 2 apples, a cup of Greek yogurt (nondairy yogurt works great too if vegan!) and 2 starter spoons to act as their paint brushes. (Also note that the yogurt can easily be replaced with chocolate spread, peanut butter, or hazelnut spread. The options are endless!) Fill some bowls with different toppings, and let their imagination take care of the rest!
Apples ‘N Honey CakeAn easy and flavorful autumn recipe that incorporates warm apples, spicy cinnamon, nutmeg, and of course sweet honey! Drizzle some of our maple glaze over the top for extra goodness!!
Apples ‘N Honey MuffinsThese apple muffins are a great make-ahead snack or breakfast option for both kids and adults alike, and are a great way to use all your autumn apples! Made with nutritious apples, whole wheat pastry flour, and oats, these muffins are made fluffy with protein-rich Greek yogurt!
Peanut Butter CRUNCH PopsiclesThese popsicles are a MUST MAKE treat (or even breakfast) before summer ends! These gems taste like indulgent creamy peanut butter ice cream with little yummy oatmeal chunks but contain healthy, clean ingredients without any of the refined sugars!
Watermelon Salad with FetaThe bold flavors of sweet watermelon, refreshing mint, and tangy lime pair so well together for a light summery meal. Easy to meal prep, all it takes is some washing and cutting of fruits, spinach, and cheese to prepare this fun main or side dish. It's one of our favorite picnic meals!
Vegan Rainbow RollsVegan rainbow rolls are a great way to pack a bunch of veggies into one meal. They're paired with aromatic herbs, protein rich chickpeas, and a creamy sweet peanut butter dipping sauce. This recipe is great for meal prepping because all the chopping of veggies + fruit can be done beforehand!
Summer Bean + Corn Pasta SaladAs a vegetarian mama, beans are my go-to for a rich protein source. I find that they pair well with corn and come together for a full meal when combined into a pasta salad. This summer dish works well as a main meal or side and can be meal prepped by cooking the pasta beforehand, in addition to chopping your veggies and roasting the corn.
Citrus Herb Quinoa SaladQuinoa is one of our favorite grains to meal prep because it's a great source of plant protein, is gluten free, high in fiber, and contains loads of vitamins. It's also super easy to meal prep + freeze! This meal combines healthy fats from creamy avocado, the aromatic fresh flavors of dill, salty feta, cool + crisp cucumbers, and sweet tomatoes in this wow-factor salad.
Peanut Butter Acai PopsiclesThis popsicle is the perfect refreshing summertime treat or even a make-ahead breakfast idea! Acai is rich in antioxidants, deliver healthy fats and fiber, and is low in sugar. These popsicles are creamy and rich from the acai/peanut butter mix, filled with nutritious banana, blueberry, and strawberry pieces, and dipped in sweet granola surrounded by chia and flaxseed.
Berry ‘N’ Yogurt PopsiclesThese popsicles are a great snacktivity to make with the kids, and also a healthy treat! They can be made dairy free (depending on the yogurt used), and are filled with clean, natural good-for-you ingredients. Perfect for those warm summer days!
