Clean Eating Healthy Recipes for Summer /Running in a Skirt

Hi guys,

I walked in the store the other day and saw all sorts of pumpkin and fall stuff. I immediately started tearing up.  I know we only have a few weeks of summer left, but I’m not ready to rush to the next season.  It seems strange to me to not just live in the moment and the focus always on the next big thing.

Sure fall is great, but summer is the season that I truly love.  Everything from hot weather, to beaches… to all the fresh produce makes this season my absolute favorite.  And in my opinion there is nothing like summer food… I adore the simple recipes using straight from the garden ingredients and even cooking outside.  I’m not ready to let go of that yet!

The celebrate that fact that it is still actually summer and we have a few more weeks to enjoy it, I’m sharing some of my favorite summer recipes. These are 10 healthy recipes for summer that you must make before the end of the season.
