I’m excited to partnering with Produce For Kids again on one of their programs to get families eating healthier. I’ve been working with Produce for Kids since 2011 and love all the great things they do to help support a healthy eating mission.

This month we’re kicking off the Mission for Nutrition! Not only will you have opportunities to get some healthy and great tasting recipe ideas, partners of Mission for Nutrition will be donating 80,000 meals to families in need through Feeding America. They have rounded up more than a dozen posts and podcasts all about meal planning too to help make your journey towards healthy eating for your family a bit easier.

In addition to the Mission for Nutrition website, I’m sharing some of my favorite, I’ve rounded up some recipes from my blog that happed to feature produce from the Mission For Nutrition partners. All of these recipes take about 15 minutes to prep—who doesn’t love that?

(Note: some of them do require longer cooking time like the slow cooker soup or chilling time for optimal flavor, but I count that as hands off time!)


My Cucumber Avocado Salsa recipe has been around forever and seriously gets gobbled up as soon as it’s set you. The bonus? It’s filled with so many good-for-you vegetables!

Cucumber Avocado Salsa

Easy and Delicious Fresh Cucumber Avocado Salsa is healthy, delicious and packed with wholesome vegetables and a little kick of spice. Perfect to make ahead (you’ll want to actually) and use as a garnish on tacos or as a dip for your favorite chips.
