3 Berry Chia Popsicles

Popsicles are a fun way to add more fruits (or even veggies) to your menu anytime of the year.  Choose your favorite combination, throw it all in a blender and then freeze to enjoy later.  It’s a great snack to have prepared ahead of time and the kiddos (and hubby!) think it’s a treat.  They don’t have to know what ingredients I sneak into them!  :-)

Oven Roasted Cauliflower

Definitely the best way to enjoy cauliflower.  I hate mushy cauliflower! :-(  Roasting the cauliflower on hight heat in the oven means you get to keep the crunch and also adds tasty browned edges.  YUM!

Zucchini Mushroom Roll-Ups

Zucchini is such a favorite of mine.  You can slice it, dice it, chop it even make it into pasta.  You can add it to so many dishes and soups, plus it is full of minerals and nutrients.

(Check out some of these great ways to serve zucchini: Spicy Zucchini Boats, Parmesan and Pepper Zucchini Fries, Confetti Rice Zucchini Boats.)
