Food: summer meals


DC has been really hot last week… we reached 100F several days! So hot breakfast doesn’t sound appetizing anymore. I’ve been having parfait or “messy” breakfast last week and love them!!!

#1 Parfait and chocolate almond milk

  1. yeah it’s been insanely hot here too! i am drinking lots of green smoothies! your dinners look so good to me! would you please come cook? 🙂 my fave salad lately consists of a half smashed avocado with mushrooms, yellow squash, olives and pickled egg over romaine. i love all the textures, flavors with that combo!

  2. I think I said it before, but I’m always impressed by how delish your food looks and how healthfully you eat Coco~ahhhh! 😀 And I love fruity salads in the summer, with tangerines or strawberry/blueberry (like from Panera bread-style!)
