Healthy Summer Treats Recipes

Summer ties with Christmas as my favorite time of the year. Both of these times challenge us in terms of nutrition. But, it’s easier than you think to stay away from all the unhealthy goodies that come with these times of the year. It’s all about swapping ingredients and finding yummy things to enjoy instead! In this post, I’ll be sharing a bunch of healthy summer treats to help you stay on track!

Summer is not only a season of ice cream—it’s also the season when some of the most delicious fruits and vegetables are rolling into the market, so healthy choices are not only abundant but also cost effective!

The BEST snacks for summer are the simple ones (if you know me at all, you know I’m ALL about simple)—like watermelon, strawberry, blueberries, peaches, and nectarines. But, sometimes you just want something more…like for a summer BBQ or family picnic.
