My complicated relationship with the month of June is in full bloom. I’m loving the warmer days (and fewer arguments with children about jackets) but am feeling the burnout of the end of the school year. I think my kids are sensing my overall frazzlement (I made it up, deal with it!) and trying to make the most of it by encouraging me to order in pizza for dinner or add a bag of chocolate chips to their lunch boxes. Nice try guys, it’s not happening.

We know you guys are feeling the strain at this time of year, too, so we’re putting together a series of healthy, super easy, delicious recipes to get you through the home stretch. They’re going to get you out of your end-of-school year rut – and ours, too! We’ll start with an easy Chia Pudding, but we have lots more coming. We created these with our friends at Almond Breeze, but as always, our recipes, opinions and obsessions are our own!
