It’s all about the berries at Whole Foods right now.  Next to picking straight from the farm, Whole Foods definitely has some of the tastiest berries around!  I should know, I’ve been to just about every local store trying to find the BEST strawberries.

Whole Foods challenged me to come up with healthy and easy berry recipes.  This is a perfect challenge for me since I LOVE incorporating fresh berries into our Menu Plan during the summer.

Berry Flag

I created a Berry Flag that will be perfect for your 4th of July celebration.  I actually served this for my little man’s birthday party, so you could use this recipe or something similar for just about any occasion.  All the kids devoured the fruit – kids will eat just about anything on a stick!

Protein-Berry-Smoothie-753x1024

I also made a Berry Smoothie with kale that is perfect for hot summer days.  Smoothies are full of nutrients and fill you up without a bunch of extra calories.

Blueberry Spelt Muffin Recipe

Looking for Recipes for Blueberry Muffins?  I made amazing Blueberry Muffins with Spelt Flour that you should checkout!  They are super easy and healthy – perfect for breakfast or a snack

I still need to make Vanilla cupcakes with strawberry buttercream icing.  YUMMY!

At the end of the week I’ll post a round-up of my berry creations, so you can find ideas to take advantage of berry season in Hampton Roads.
