Juicy, sweet, succulent, antioxidant rich...blackberries! So bright and beautiful.

I can not get enough of fresh berries in the warmer months. Cherries, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries...

Oh, and smoothies - can't get enough of those either! Breakfast made easy. Or have one as a mid-day snack...or post workout replenisher...or dessert! They're so very versatile. I make so many of them in the spring and summer months.

This one is a meal too, packing nearly 20 grams of protein with the 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt and chia seeds. A {naturally} sweet, creamy, and fulfilling drink!

Mmmmm, enjoy!

And now I must clip coupons, grocery shop, fold laundry, and go for a run...because that's what Sunday's at my home look like.

Enjoy yours!
