Summer Yummies

I have some healthy food recommendations for all of you. They are really mostly year 'round foods, but I think they are even better in the summer. I also purchased all of these at Publix which is my new favorite store (sorry Trader Joes - you are too far from me).

greek yogurt
yes it's thick, but it's also yummy and low sugar/cal and high protein.

fresh berries (blue, black, rasp)
so yummy and cheap when they are in season.

steel cut oats
more nuitrious than regular oatmeal, takes longer to prepare, but worth it.

*Also mising the oats with the greek yogurt and topping it with berries is a breakfast treat from heaven.*

diet iced green tea
green tea is really good for you. I both brew my own or drink this watered down.

true lemon/lime
these are real crystallized fruits in a little packet. they a great way to amp up your water, there also is an orange one that i have yet to find.

planters’s nut-rition bars
good like snack item to keep you full.

roasted red pepper hummus
serious hummus where have you been all my life. I am become hummus obsessed the last year. hummus on my sandwiches, hummus wiht stacy's pita chips, hummus with carrots!

avocados are not a new treat for me, but i love them nonetheless. they are packed with such good stuff for you.

Anyone have a good guacoamole recipe for me (codi i'm looking at you).

I highly encourage you to try any or all of these items.
