I don’t know about you, but I just love the warm weather and all the seasonal produce it brings along with it.  Healthy, fresh food does not need to be bland. I eat healthy and can tell you that you don’t have to sacrifice flavor or eat boring.

This Southwestern Avocado Toast is no exception. For this recipe, I chose to use  eureka! organic bread which bursts with rich flavor and tasty goodness! It pairs so well with the fresh tomatoes, onions, cilantro and avocado. Put it all together and you have yourself a very delicious and flavorful meal!

Oat Bran Muffins (Vegan, Gluten Free)

I have some Oat Bran Muffins for you to try!  I have been making bran muffins for years.  However, the recipe I use is not gluten free.  It calls for spelt flour.

So this week, I tweaked it a bit to make it gluten free.  The result was delicious and my 6 year old LOVED them.  I hope you love them too.
