AVOCADO CHICKEN SALAD

AVOCADO CHICKEN SALAD

Try this light and zesty favorite.  So much flavor, lightly creamy, a little lemon for a bright zing.  Oh so satisfying.

When you prepare this, be sure to prepare some extras, as this is such an easy grab-and-go favorite.  Put a dollop on your salad greens, enjoy with some raw veggies, or simply eat it as is!

B.L.A.T. LETTUCE WRAPS

I grew up eating BLTs with my dad. It was one food that we both loved, especially when we had fresh garden tomatoes to use.

Lately, I have been playing with this lettuce wrap version (and adding 🥑 avocado). Butter lettuce is my favorite lettuce for a lettuce wrap, and pair it with avocado mayo and it's a little slice of heaven.

Try this yummy lunch when you can!

PALISADE PEACH CAPRESE

"PATIENCE IS BITTER, BUT ITS FRUIT IS SWEET"

Here in Colorado we love our Palisade peaches. To me there is nothin' better than a late summer peach. This recipe is a fun spin on a Caprese salad and a delightful addition to your harvesty table.

This low glycemic fruit is a great late summer fruit to boost up your antioxidant intake without throwing your blood sugar off track.  If you can find local organic peaches in your area, you will notice the flavors are even more full and tasty. 

If you are not a dairy eater, feel free to substitute the fresh mozzarella in this recipe with a nut cheese (such as ricotta) and enjoy!!

ZUCCHINI COLLAGEN JOHNNYCAKES

"If you have a garden, you have a library of everything you need."

 

Oh those summer garden zucchinis can be just so yummy in so many different ways...but wait until you try these!!  Savory, scrumptious and so full of goodness. A little extra collagen peptides added in to these delicious cakes and your skin, nails and digestion will thank you.

Zucchini is a nutrient dense, hydrating and versatile veggie that is chock full of potassium, vitamin C,  manganese and many other phytonutrients and antioxidant. Zucchini is also low glycemic and highly anti-inflammatory.  Add a little collagen powder (available at your local health food store) and you are gearing up for a great dish!
