3 Simple Dairy-Free Breakfasts -- perfect way to use summer's abundant fruite and vegetables for a nutritous start to your day!

When I think about summer during the cold winter months, I imagine lazy mornings spent enjoying a huge breakfast with my kids, but then summer actually arrives and I’m reminded once again how busy we get. It’s often difficult to maintain healthy habits during the change in schedule with vacations, kids activities, and just generally enjoying the sun and outdoors.

One way to keep eating healthy during the summer is to enjoy the abundance of summer fruit available. What about pairing all those delicious berries, stone fruits, and fresh vegetables with Silk’s newest product, Silk Almond Coconut Blend? Here are three ways you can whip up simple, dairy-free breakfasts this summer.

silk-almond-coconut-blend-review-4

One of the easiest ways to pack a bunch of produce into your breakfast is making green smoothies. Just blend about 12 ounces of Silk Almond Coconut Blend with a handful of fresh spinach, frozen bananas, and any seasonal fruit you can get your hands on. You could even add some peanut or almond butter to get more protein.

I love the extra flavor that comes with the Almond Coconut Blend — much more exciting than plain old milk.

silk-almond-coconut-blend-review-1

This idea is crazy simple — just use Silk Almond Coconut Blend in place of milk in your morning cereal. It has less calories than cow’s milk and and less fat than the whole milk I typically serve my kids. Try your hand at making you own granola or grab a high-quality variety at the store and top with fresh fruit.

Last, how about using Silk Almond Coconut Blend to whip up a morning latte? It will give a nutty flavor to your coffee so you’ll probably only need a touch of honey or other sweetener. Add a bowl of fresh fruit and you have a super nutritious and filling breakfast or morning snack! Learn how to make a latte or mocha at home without an espresso maker here.

July: Produce in season for the Pacific Northwest

by Emily from Frugal Living NW on July 21, 2014

Summer Produce in the Pacific NW: What is ripe in July?

July: Produce in season for the Pacific NW

* Thanks to the warm weather we had in late May/early June this year, crops are about 1-2 weeks ahead of last year’s schedule. We will update this post as crops ripen through the summer. *

Blueberries (my favorite u-pick berry) are still going strong. With the cooler weather, this would be a great week to head out to the fields to pick enough berries to fill your freezer! Check out Pick Your Own for u-pick farms near you! Blackberries are also ripening right now. This is crazy early.  Blackberries are available everywhere for the low, low price of free. Get some! Peaches & apricots, as well as early varieties of apples, are also ready now.

Local corn is coming in from the field, in addition to green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, and peppers. I just pulled up my garlic stalks this past week. The heads were full, and the stalks were starting to die back and fall over.

So much fresh local produce is at its peak right now! You just can’t beat summer in the Pacific NW.

Here are some other crops that are currently in season, along with a few of our favorite ways to use them:

Apricots

Blackberries

Blueberries

Cherries

Corn

Cucumbers

Garlic

Greens (chard, kale)

Peaches

Peas

Tomatoes

Food Rules: An Eaters Manual by Michael Pollan

You’ve heard of Michael Pollan’s books. They are a thorough, thoughtful look at the food we eat. One of my favorites is Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual (Amazon). It is a fast, funny read, highlighting 64 simple “rules” about healthy eating habits. Including my favorite: “It’s not food if it’s served through the window of your car.”

huggies-natural-care-wipes-lowest-price

Amazon has Huggies Wipes for a stockpile price right now — as low as 1.4 cents per wipe shipped! This is the “buy even if you don’t need them” price. I suggest you pick up one box as this deal comes around only every couple of months!

Here’s how to do the deal:

:: Head to the Huggies Natural Care Baby Wipes, Refill, 624 Count. The list price is $13.58.

:: Clip the $2 off coupon on the Huggies Natural Care Baby Wipes page, found under the product list price. Make sure you’re logged into your Amazon account to see the offer.

:: Select your Subscribe & Save delivery interval. I always select the 6 month option so I have plenty of time to cancel or change my subscription if I want (see below).

:: Add the diapers to your cart by clicking the “Subscribe & Save” button instead of the “One time delivery” button. You will receive 20% off plus FREE shipping with “Subscribe & Save” if you’re an Amazon Mom member or 5% off plus FREE shipping if you’re not. (See if you’re eligible for a FREE three-month trial of Amazon Mom.)

:: Once you’ve enrolled in the Subscribe & Save program, you will receive automatic shipments of that product from Amazon at intervals you set. You are under no obligation to continue your subscription once your initial order ships and you can easily cancel through the “Manage” option in “Your Account.”

You will pay as low as $8.86 total for 624 of Huggies wipes, which is 1.4 cents per wipe shipped or 1.7¢ per wipe if you’re not an Amazon Mom member!

You can also select the 504 count box, clip the $2 off coupon, and pay as little as $6.78 shipped if you’re an Amazon Mom member.

Prices are subject to change at any time and without notice.
