Delicious eats lately

Hi guys!  Popping in on this low key Sunday morning to share some delicious eats that have been happening in my house lately that haven’t made it to the blog for one reason or another.  I’ll keep the words short because I am off for a short run before we make our way our to our boat to do some maintenance to get it ready to put in the water in a few short weeks!! (Praying for boat weather soon!!)

First let’s start with some yummy snacks!

Green smoothie and chocolate chia seed pudding with lots of toppings!

Then we set out for a long bike ride around the island.  My husband programmed his drone to follow us so we were quite the site to see 😉  I’ll post the pictures from the drone later this week.

Lunch was a big salad with walnuts, avocado, and balsamic dressing and a big side of grapes!

I could eat this lunch every day.

Then I did some lounging in the backyard.  It was about 81 so it was perfect.

Ofcourse, we have to have some snacks. 

We decided to have dinner at home last night instead of going out.  I made a big salad of arugula, strawberries, walnuts, and avocado with balsamic dressing.
