You might have noticed by now that my theme for the summer – especially for lunches is EASY and healthy.
Need some inspiration? Here are a few of my fave lunches (old fave’s that you may have forgotten about) – simple nothing fancy just easy and tasty.
Tuna – mixed with 1 TB olive oil , half fat mayo, pepper, a touch of salt and red onion and a tomato sliced.

Red Clover Limonade!
My new favorite summer drink is Red Clover Limonade! Thanks to my local organic produce supplier @svetecfarms for the red clover and the recipe! I will never look at a field of red clover and wonder what the heck to do with it again!
I changed it up a little because I started making it and then realized I had no lemons (a little difficult to make lemonade without lemons!) so I substituted limes instead – next time I would add orange slices with the strawberries too!
Here’s the recipe!
(makes about 8 c)
2 Quarts red clover blooms (disregard the leaves and stems) (about 8 cups)
8 cups water
1/2 c honey
1 c sliced strawberries
1/2 c fresh squeezed lime juice.
Step 4 – Add strawberries and fresh lime juice (this is where I would add orange slices as well next time).
Step 5 – Stir, and refrigerate until cold.
