Friday Five: Recipes to Try

I'm back with another Friday Five.  I don't know about you but summer has me craving all kinds of healthier foods. This week I started eating better and working out more. I've been gathering all kinds of delicious recipes that use the fruits and vegetables from our garden as well as our local farmers' markets.  During the summer I don't like to eat heavy meals, so I'm always searching for something light and nutritious.  Here are some of the recipes I'm hoping to try in the next few weeks

This recipe looks tasty. Most of these ingredients are things that we have growing in our container garden right now. I am working to limit my pasta intake, but this recipe could be more veggies than pasta which wouldn't be so bad!

Okay so this is definitely not one of those healthy recipes I was talking about. However, I've been seeing so many pictures of yummy lobster rolls and I am just dying to try one myself. 

Zucchini noodles have been all the rage for a year or so now, but I have yet to try and eat or make them. Learning to make them sounds like the perfect summer activity

Everything about this just sounds so good. Kale is a great super food that is high with many nutrients. This recipe seems pretty easy and healthy.

Smoothie bowls are another thing that have become increasingly popular. I haven't eaten one nor tried to create my own yet. However, I think this is something I'm going to attempt soon. I drink smoothies pretty regularly, so this is right up my alley.

Since we're talking about new recipes that are perfect for summer, I thought I'd leave you with a recipe that I tried earlier this summer. This lemon shrimp pasta was nice and light- great for a summer dinner! You can find it on Pinterest here

I'd love to hear if you've tried any of these recipes and any recipes you are just itching to experiment with!
