Summer fun and summer food

After weeks of sometimes quite-cool-for-the-time-of-year temperatures, it’s hot in Northern California right now, and we took full advantage of the pool.

We have also been enjoying more veggies & fruits and are all feeling better because of it.

Pasta & Salads

I am also back to taking barre classes more regularly, and my low back feels a lot better. I took my first advanced class the other day and was SERIOUSLY sore (despite modifying some of the moves…).

Questions: What’s some of the summer fun you’ve been enjoying lately? I really enjoy all the early summer produce at the Farmers’ Market. Cherries are my favorite fruit, and we have been enjoying them a lot. I’ve also been buying different varieties of peaches and surprisingly really enjoy them. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll know that I’m not a “fruit person,” but I’ll have to admit that good, ripe in season fruit is delicious. In addition, I love making big bowls of wonderful salads with different types of lettuce, tomatoes, radishes, spring onions,…  What’s your favorite exercise at the moment? I still love my hikes but as the temps are heating up, it’s essential to go early in the morning and that’s not always possible. I also enjoy taking more barre classes and love being strong enough to get deeper into all the exercises.

Be well,
