Summer Food

Suns out and blazing! There are friends to meet, miles to run, trails to ride, parties to attend, vacations to plan...

Who wants to slave away in the kitchen?

 Summer food should be easy to prepare. Quick, simple, colorful, energizing, and fresh are all adjectives that come to mind when thinking about the perfect summer dish. 

Here is a collection of some easy, toss together, healthful meals to have you eating well, but not stuck over a stove. 

Many of these recipes use a few packaged items. Don't fret! While its always best to make your own... lets be realistic... sometimes you just need to grab a staple and be done with it. Thankfully, there are so many good quality, nutrition forward products on the shelves nowadays so eating clean and healthfully doesn't have to mean a complete from scratch approach. My advise is to not get carried away; find a few staples you love and make the rest fresh.
