Hey friends! How are you? Well, I hope.
Have you traveled, adventured, done something exciting that warrants leaving a comment to share? I hope so.
June is over. Did you know that? And we’re on to July – my favorite month. The month wherein I turn 30. As in 30 years old. Whoa. How did that happen? Am I still cool? Please say yes.
It’s monthly recap time where we highlight the food and non-food things we made, some upcoming EVENTS (!), and what we’re into.
Let’s get started with eats!
1. Pear Salad with Dried Cherries and Candied Walnuts // 2. S’mores Bars (Vegan + Gluten Free) // 3. Portobello Steaks with Avocado Chimichurri // 4. Summer Tomato & Cantaloupe Salad // 5. Banana Split Smoothie // 6. Chickpea Shawarma Dip // 7. Grilled Corn with Sriracha Aioli // 8. Whoopie Pie S’mores // 9. Mango Energy Bites // 10. Grilled Corn & Zucchini Salad with Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette // 11. Coconut Cream Pie (Vegan + Gluten Free) // 12. Cauliflower Rice Stuffed Peppers // 13. Healthy Fig Newtons (GF)
I was obsessed with the Healthy Fig Newtons this month, as well as the Banana Split Smoothie and S’mores Bars (sweet tooth much?). My favorite savory recipe was the Portobello Steaks – so good. What about you?

Things We’re Into //
Learn: This article on how productivity is really about what you don’t do. I’m a believer.
Watch: Izy Hossack’s video recipe for sweet potato chocolate mousse. So adorbs. So delish.
Read: I learned a ton from the book Modern Rapunzel by Jeanne Powers. It’s all about how to grow long healthy hair, maintain a healthy complexion, and so many other natural health secrets. A great read for you ladies there who are totally vain like me and searching for the fountain of youth. This book just might be it.
Follow: Two Instagram accounts I’ve been loving lately are Shut the Kale Up for gorgeous food pics with a side of sass, glimpses of real life as a mom, and tons of fitness inspiration. Another new-to-me account is Cashew Kitchen which has some seriously dreamy food pics.
