Happy Father’s Day to all dads and dads-to-be today!  What are you making for the special man in your life?  If you’re not yet sure, I encourage you to try out my newest salad creation: Grilled Hamburger Salad!  It’s quick and easy to make, and helps dad stay on his Maximized Living Nutrition Plan while still enjoying all the flavors of his favorite burger.

Stay tuned for Picnic Week starting tomorrow!  I’ve mastered 8 new picnic-friendly recipes that are simple to make and easy to tote!  Excited to share them with you over the next eight days.

Today, I am sharing what we had for breakfast this morning.  My tummy was feeling a little uneasy (thanks somewhat to the little person living inside of me I’m sure), so I wanted a gingery smoothie to help ease it.  This smoothie turned out very tasty!
