Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats

By Gina Caputo

Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats
I'm not a pumpkin spice fanatic. I don't go to Starbucks for the pumpkin spice drinks and don't buy pumpkin spice candles and all that. But for this entire year I've been obsessed with making overnight protein oats trying to find the most delicious ways to eat this super-convenient breakfast. So once the PS mania started this year, I thought I should give some Pumpkin Spice Overnight Protein Oats a try and this one is a WINNER!

Shrimp, Corn & Coconut Rice Bowl

By Gina Caputo

Shrimp, Corn & Coconut Rice Bowl
This is summer comfort food at it's best! Somehow it's creamy, soothing and delicious without feeling heavy. Shrimp and corn are a classic combo (grits anyone?) that are upleveled with the flavors of coconut and a little jalapeño kick. The acid from the lime at the end is LIFE!

Summer BBQ Bowl

By Gina Caputo

Summer BBQ Bowl
The New York Times recently posted a grilled potato salad recipe that inspired me to create an entire BBQ meal (minus the watermelon for dessert) as a One Bowl Wonder. BBQ, corn and potato salad all in one! This may not be the prettiest OBW I've ever made but it is definitely one of the tastiest, especially if you love BBQ sauce like I do. Can easily be made vegan!

Watermelon Salad

By Gina Caputo

Watermelon Salad
This is such a simple One Bowl Wonder and my absolute favorite for the hottest summer days. Sweet watermelon combines beautifully with salty feta, bitter arugula and spicy grilled chicken or tofu with a tangy lemon vinagrette. Major crowd pleaser right here.

Chicken/Chickpea Salad

By Gina Caputo

Chicken/Chickpea Salad
When I was living in Kansas City, my favorite place to eat was a luncheonette called Happy Gillis. Mismatched s&p shakers, great sandwich bread, epic chocolate chip cookies and the world's greatest chicken salad. I do not consider myself a chicken salad person. At all. But I love to ask what the staff loves and someone recommended this and I've never looked back. It's INCREDIBLE. I included a vegetarian option too!

Overnight Oats with Mango Milk

By Gina Caputo

Overnight Oats with Mango Milk
I loved my Overnight Oats with Blueberry Milk so much that I started to get creative with more fruit milks in my overnight oats. And this tropical delight was a big WIN!! Mangoes are in season right now - you can use frozen ones or chop up fresh mango if you prefer. Cool oats are especially good in the summer when you don't want a bowl of hotness to start your day!

PB & CACAO PROTEIN BALLS

By Gina Caputo

PB & CACAO PROTEIN BALLS
Another One Ball Wonder! Sometimes a bar is all we have time to grab and go. But I rarely enjoy eating them and always wish something was different. So I started making my own! I love having total control over the ingredients and this one is reminiscent of a healthy Reese's with all the peanut and chocolate with a punch of protein to keep the macronutrients in check!

Club Tropicana Smoothie

By Gina Caputo

Club Tropicana Smoothie
Like most of you, I've got my go-to smoothie that never fails to deliver. But I'm also a creative and food is my medium! So I experimented with a vague memory of an Orange Julius and came up with this smoothie that includes orange AND pineapple or mango! Not to mention a totally bizarre sounding veggie in there. TRUST ME. Bonus points if you're old enough to know what the name is referencing 😜
