Summer 2016 is here. #SummerCravings

Summer is here!!!

What are some of your summer cravings ??

I crave long walks on the beach, refreshing drinks, sweet yogurt dessert and relax on my deck with my amazing super comfy prana pants soaking up the sun and life and enjoying our beautiful kids. 

Our summer has been super amazing, since we recently moved out to PA. We have enjoyed family bbq’s, traveling and exploring more of PA. We recently discovered fireflies, while chilling outside on our deck. Living in San Diego, CA we never seen fireflies before except read about them. Now we get to enjoy the luminescent little lighting bugs and they are pretty amazing. We’re just enjoying the beautiful weather. 

Summer drink: I love me some Passion Tea Lemonade it is so refreshing and so good (its a copycat version of startbucks, except its way cheaper and less sugar). I recently made a bulk recipe to share with you all. Hope you love it as much as I do. 

Summer snack: I love Stonyfield Greek Yogurt (strawberry whole milk) it makes such a great post workout snack or anytime snack. It’s so delish. I also love Yo’Kids squeeze and of course Stonyfield fruit snacks (these are thee BEST snacks EVER!!)

Summer jeans: Yes, I like to wear pants in the summer time. I have fallen in love with Prana’s Kara Jeans. They are a low rise fitted skinny jeans. Organic cotton and polyester, elastane making them stretchy and super comfy. I love that they are a sustainable company that are mindful of our earth. The fitting on these jeans is like no other i’ve ever worn. They are thin, stretchy, and I can actually wear them in the summer time, without being hot.

Banana Oatmeal Bread

sf

My husband and I have been trying to ‘eat clean’. I am a sweet bread, dessert lover, kinda girl. This year though, Thanksgiving will be all about healthier choices. Since we are a banana loving family, we always tend to have banana bread in all holiday menu’s. While searching for healthy banana bread recipes, I didn’t really find what I was looking for, so instead I used the basic info and tweaked it to my likings. 

Banana Oatmeal Bread
A healthy, delicious choice for banana lovers.

This recipe does not contain butter instead I substituted for StonyField Plain LowFat Yogurt. It’s so awesome to know that Yogurt is good for you. I recently started substituting yogurt for sour cream in my rice, tacos and it’s amazing to notice not much of a huge change except for the HUGE fact of course that Yogurt is good for you and sour cream not so much.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. I froze 2 loafs for thanksgiving already, I also love to use it for my daughters bento snack, since it’s a healthy choice. Be sure to check out  Stonyfield Yogurt Substitution Guide-2 interesting stuff.
