It must be something about the spring that has got me thinking of eating cleaner, greener and more balanced overall. I've always been a "healthy eater" by general standards, but I'm vowing to put more conscious effort into eating well-balanced meals. My favorite means of getting delicious, easy ideas comes from...surprise, surprise... Pinterest. I've also recently discovered an amazing blog called Deliciously Ella. Her recipes are clean and fresh and make you feel good. The blogger has come up with some amazing ideas to bring health and fun to the table.
My favorite recipe as of late is muesli- I first discovered it on my Mediterranean cruise this summer and found a great recipe on Deliciously Ella. It's super easy to make and keeps you feeling full! I perfected my personal rendition on it this weekend: 

  • Prep oats by soaking them in water overnight. I use two packets of the--- oatmeal - it's great because it has flax seed in it. 
  • In the morning, toss in some diced up pear or apple and banana
  • Add some chopped nuts- I like walnuts 
  • Stir in a bit of honey (optional) and a doll-up of Greek yogurt 
  • Add in almond milk 
  • And, finally- enjoy!
Simple and satisfying- a perfect way to start your day!

Beautiful views, amazing company and great memories! Everything about our Mexican getaway was awesome. It's amazing what a little sunshine and sand can do for the spirit! Can't wait for warmer temps ahead on the home front!
