Healthy Summer Recipes You Will Love To Try!

Here are just a few summer recipes to get you started and make your taste buds happy.
* Above you can see spreading your favorite hummus spread on toast and topping it with fruit is a wonderful way to kick off your day.
* Green Bowl Recipe
1 banana (fresh or frozen)
½ an avocado
1 cup or more of greens, I use pre-washed kale and spinach – makes it really easy
A few frozen strawberries or whatever fruit you like
A scoop of protein powder, I like the Jay Robb vanilla flavor
A few drops of stevia
And a dash of coconut milk or milk of choice, since we want this to be thicker than a smoothie add less liquid.
Mix it up every time to keep it fresh and fun.
* Zucchini Pasta Recipe
There are many recipes out there for how to make the perfect zucchini pasta
Use a spirliazer or julienne slicer to cut noodles into thin strips (best rated spirliazer on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Spiralizer%C2%A...)
Dehydrate the noodles - if you don’t do this, they will be slimy and won’t taste as good.
Method one: Put zucchini on a baking tray, sprinkle with a little salt and put in oven at 200 degrees for 15 minutes.
Method 2: generously salt noodles and leave out for 15 minutes, rinse off salt with water and pat dry with paper towels.
After dehydrating the noodles put in salted, boiling water for 4 minutes. Serve with sauce and toppings of choice.
* Carrot Apple Salad
1 part shredded carrot with 1 part shredded green apple. Dressing is 1-2 tbs of olive oil, juice of one lime and 1-2 cloves of fresh pressed garlic. YUM!

* Lemon Water Hack / Frozen Lemon Water
Juice a bowl of lemons at one time – you can get a juicer like the one I used for only $15 from amazon
Pour into ice cube tray and freeze. I use 2-3 cubes per 18 oz of water. You can also add mint, lavender or any other herb/flavoring to your lemon cubes based on what you enjoy.
