I have been away from my own kitchen for much too long-- looking forward to getting back home tomorrow and making all my own food! .
.
.
Hot days call for easy meals. I love this combo of guacamole, pico de gallo, and cashew cheeze paired with baby bell peppers for lunch or snacks. .

What is your favorite hot weather go-to? .

Loving this lunch from @sweetgreen in D.C. 👏🏻 This bowl is a lovely mix of greens, spicy broccoli and quinoa, beets, carrots, sprouts, and a delicious dressing. .
.
.
Also happens to be a nice reprieve from the sudden rainstorms that I didn't know were coming 🤷🏼‍♀️

When your @airbnb host knocks on the door to offer you a bowl of fresh raspberries picked from the backyard 🙌🏻 #winning .
.
.
I plan to snack on these beauties all day. Not only are raspberries delicious, but they are also a great source of Vitamin C and manganese. Their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties make them pretty remarkable berries. Stick with organic though to reap the most benefits!

What is your favorite way to eat raspberries?

We're more than halfway through the month-- how are you doing on Plastic Free July? .
.
I am realizing that traveling makes it tough sometimes and I haven't always been prepared (I have acquired another plastic fork). But I have also had some successes and have managed to avoid all plastic bags. The biggest part is that I am making conscious choices every day. I am really thinking about every piece of plastic that comes near me. Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn! .
.
.
What is your biggest plastic-free challenge? .

Is there anything better than a bowl of fresh falafel and sitting by the ocean? Didn't think so. 💕💕💕

I picked about 5 lbs of sour cherries this week and today I am making some jam so I can enjoy some of this summer fruit in the winter months 🍒🙌🏻
.
.
.
Cherries are an awesome source of antioxidants and can help to reduce inflammation. Plus, they are so gorgeous, aren't they? .
.

What is your favorite in-season fruit or veggie right now?
