A Taste of Italy, a week in Nantucket, loads of Link Love, and a Nutritioulicious start to July.
Hello everyone! I was away last week, so other than a few Tweets, Pins, and Instagram posts (mostly of my fam!) I took a little time off from work and the blog. But now I’m back and have lots of fun things to share with you, including family photos, some awesome articles and recipes from the past two weeks, and a Nutritioulicious menu leading up to July 4th weekend.
First up, in case you missed it, my June article and recipe for Today’s Dietitian is now available online. In A Taste of Italy I share some of the food and nutrition lessons I learned while studying abroad in Florence during my Junior year at NYU. Plus I share a spin on the classic Caprese Salad; perhaps you’ll want to try it as a vegetarian side dish for your holiday weekend barbecue!
Speaking about food, we had lots of good eats while on the island of Nantucket last weekend with my husband’s family. What was Charlotte and Sabrina’s favorite part of the trip? Ice cream every night! Here are some fun photos of the kids and one of our whole family (sans our dog) from the last night on the island.
Now onto this week’s #LinkLove. There were so many great articles and recipes I came across over the past two weeks. This list doesn’t include them all, but if you want to see other links I shared you can check out my Twitter feed and Facebook page.
