You may recall my blog post from a few months ago where I made a bunch of breakfast burritos for Josh before he left for a tournament in Florida. Basically, I spent a couple hours making a bunch of burritos with eggs and sausage and cheese and yummy veggies that all got wrapped up in parchment paper and popped into the freezer for him to pull out and throw into the microwave for a super fast breakfast before he hits the water for the day. While he's been living the lake life, I've been keeping it real with #cubelife which means sandwiches for lunches most days at the office gets real old, real fast. I try to switch it up with interesting meats, spreads and cheeses, or make a salad but after a week or so I end up at Chipotle because I just can't take it anymore! Enter make ahead burritos.
We're a big fan of entertaining in our home. A few weeks ago we hosted our good friends James and Luanne. Every time my girl Lu comes over for dinner I can count on her to bring a tasty new salad for us to try and she definitely didn't disappoint. In fact, it was so tasty I'm going to share it with you here today. The great thing is that this salad is the epitome of clean eating. All of the ingredients are in their rawest form and brought together with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar at the end.
When I was a little girl, baking was one of my favorite hobbies. One of my favorite recipes was these Greek Yogurt Muffins. They were super simple to make and my mom always seemed to have the right ingredients in the house for them at all times. So whenever I knew she was having a bad day at work, I would make these for her after I got home from school to cheer her up. Even to this day, I still make these to cheer people up (myself included) and it works every time! The great thing about them is that they are pretty healthy for muffins since there are no eggs but include greek yogurt and almond milk. The fruit can easily be substituted for whatever you have around. I've used blueberries, apples, bananas, cranberries and they all hold up really well in this recipe. Be sure to watch the full instructional video at the end!
Hey there -
I'm Bri! Lover of food, wine, and photography that is currently traveling with my professional bass fishing husband along with our cantankerous rottie, Kigen. When not traveling you can find me living the lake life off the shores of Lake Mille Lacs in Isle, MN. Pour a drink, pull up a chair and join me as I journey across the country documenting it all along the way!
