Get Jazzed About Summer Vacation Part 1
Summer is here and school is just about finished for the year, so that means family vacations, family reunions, picnics and cookouts! I can get jazzed about that.
What are you going to do this year if this is your year of living a healthy lifestyle what are you going to do when it comes to eating at all of these wonderful events that I mentioned at the top?
You know as well as I do that at family cookouts you can find yourself over eating. Let’s face it, good tasting food is everywhere! I want to encourage you to bring very healthy but very tasty food to those events that include eating.
Desserts are where a lot of people get off track. People bring pies, cakes and cookies and maybe some home made ice cream. Yum! You can bring something a little lighter.
A pretty bowl fresh of berries and a can or two of Ready Whip is a great treat.
If you want people to be able to have a little taste of chocolate with fruit make chocolate dipped strawberries. Use both white and dark chocolate for a beautiful presentation.
I’ve included the recipe for this fabulous dessert.
Serve this treat on a cupcake tree and you will be the talk of the ladies.
I’m going to talk about the proteins and salads at these fun events in my next blog.
