Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Whenever I have ripe bananas in my kitchen, I try to take advantage of the sweetness they provide in a recipe. I never like throwing them away! I previously shared this cranberry banana bread recipe that is on constant rotation in our house, but I wanted to create something new this week. I also had a few bags of chocolate chips waiting to be used, so I figured why not combine the two in a recipe?! Let’s be honest, what’s better than chocolate for breakfast (or anytime of the day)? I can’t think of much else!

Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites

These energy bites are the perfect snack for when you are on the go and need a quick, healthy dose dose of protein and healthy fats. They are a great alternative to energy or protein bars that can be expensive, and often have a lot of added sugars and other ingredients.

Breakfast Quinoa

 This is an alternative to oatmeal, whole grain, protein filled meal that will keep you satiated until lunch time. Its extremely versatile and could be mixed with a variety of mix ins- I used seasonal berries for this batch, but I love to add dried fruit, hemp seeds, chia seeds, bananas, pumpkin etc.

Watermelon Arugula Salad with White Wine Vinaigrette

With these hot temperatures we have been having, fruit has been my go-to food! It just seems to satisfy me when I come home from the day {usually sweating}. Also, any dinner that I can create that requires minimal oven use, is a winner to me! I recently had the watermelon feta salad at Panera Bread which inspired me to create this dressing and salad! I love the light flavor that the dressing provides, and the watermelon adds a sweetness that fits perfectly with the arugula. We had this salad as a side dish to Mahi Mahi; however, it would be great to bring for lunch as well.
