The first day of summer is going to be here before we know it. Here in Florida it feels like summer already arrived. The weather is beautiful and the daily afternoon rain showers have started. The arrival of summer means vacations, road trips, backyard barbecues and more. But before we head into summer, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite recipes featuring fresh spring flavors. Blueberries, sprouts, avocado, greens and more are packed into this Spring Superfood Bowl. A fresh blueberry-ginger dressing tops it all off and creates a meal packed with flavor and important nutrients to supercharge your body for summer.

I love using organicgirl SUPER SPINACH because it not only includes baby spinach, but also baby bok choy and sweet baby kale. Three different types of greens means more flavor and vitamins. Salad greens are one ingredient that I always have in my fridge. I add them to my egg scramble in the morning, layer them over my sandwich for lunch and make myself a beautiful bowl of green goodness for dinner. Spring Superfood bowls are everything that I love about spring in one easy bowl.

My hair would not fair well with that humidity.
