Peanut Butter Banana Protein Snack Dip

This delicious dip made from yogurt, banana and peanut butter is the perfect  protein packed treat to pair with some whole grain pretzels or apple slices, or celery, for a fun after school snack, or even to pack into a lunch box!
After School Snack Ideas

I got the recipe from my local paper, and love that it takes just a minute to mix together, and tastes wonderful, yet is a more healthy dip compared to the sugar filled options sometimes surrounding us. I love that you can use this for a quick afternoon pick me up, or an easy and fun lunch option once in a while.

Peaches and Cream Protein Smoothie #FarmersMarketWeek

Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

This burst of morning sunshine will get your day going on a bright note, with fresh or frozen peaches, your choice of milk, and a bit of protien and other ingredients, to keep you filled up and going all morning long!

This easy to whip together meal replacement is a grab and go drink that you can pull together with frozen peaches or dice up a fresh peach. Do you prefer almond milk, or soy milk, over regular milk, no problem, use what you like!
Peach Smoothie

I don't use ice cubes in mine, as extreme cold can trigger a migraine,but feel free to add some ice cubes if you like it nice and frosty!

Jan's Tip: The optional ground flax will add just a bit of extra fiber to the drink to help sustain you and keep you feeling fuller longer. I add just a touch to every smoothie I make. It's more natural than those fiber packets you can buy and more gentle to your digestive system if you've never used supplements. 

Let's get started, we need to get out the door!

Summer Veggies & Kielbasa Sheet Pan Dinner #FarmersMarketWeek

It may be the tail end of summer, but the wonderful summer vegetables still have one last shot at being enjoyed before we transition to fall soups and stews!  Sheet pan dinners are easy to put together and this Kielbasa and Summer Veggie Sheet Pan dinner couldn't be more easy or more tasty!

What a perfect end to summer, than this wonderful blend of summer farmers market vegetables and easy summer sausage! I love the simplicity of it!

Feel free to play around with what you find at the Farmers Market or pick from your garden! Have sweet potatoes instead of regular? Perfect! Want to toss on a few strips of green or red pepper?  No problem!  I love the flavors of smoky Kielbasa and squash with buttery corn and potatoes, but you can not go wrong with anything you put together!

Jan't Tip: Try to dice, chop or slice your veggies, especially potatoes.So they cook evenly. 

Let's get cooking!
