Recipes for Spring Break

Whether you’re hitting the beach, heading to the mountains or just chilling on the couch, you’ve got to eat! Try these yummy recipes so your stomach can be as happy and relaxed as you are this break.

Superfood Coconut Oil Granola with Chia & Flax

Chia seeds are known for their high fiber, protein and Omega-3 fatty acid content. Flax is a great source of fiber and Omega-3’s as well, but it’s also known for its lignans which are high in plant estrogen and antioxidants. This granola is chock full of these highly beneficial ingredients and more. Plus, the recipe is pretty easy to follow!

Granola takes some time to prepare, but once it’s baked it will last a while, making it a great snack to bring to the beach, take on a hike or just bring to the couch for any spring break activities you have planned.

One Pan Lemon Butter Garlic Shrimp and Asparagus

Whether you’re spending your break at the beach or not, juicy, flavorful seafood is sure to get you in vacation mode. Shrimp is super easy to make already and this one-pan recipe makes it even easier. This recipe takes just 15 minutes so you can squeeze a fresh-cooked, healthy meal into your fun-filled days.

You can eat the shrimp and asparagus alone, or add noodles for a roasted shrimp pasta with a side of asparagus. The seasoning for this dish consists of spices, herbs and oils you’ll find in many kitchens, so as long as you have some frozen shrimp and some asparagus on hand, you could make this anytime.

Salmon Bowl with Black Rice

I was first introduced to “power bowls” when I spent this past summer on the beach, so it’s only fitting that a power bowl make it onto this list. Power bowls are a delicious meal you can eat for lunch, or dinner. They are filling, which is why I always fueled up with one before an adventure on my days off.

This specific bowl is packed with salmon, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, carrots, avocado, purple cabbage, and black rice. The recipe will make you feel like you’re spending the day on a tropical beach, even if you’re just sitting at your kitchen table!

Edible Sea Glass Candy

If you’ve ever stumbled upon sea glass, then you know how pretty this treasure is. Now you can make your own, and eat it too! This sweet treat only uses four ingredients and is perfect for displaying at a casual get together or packing as a treat for the beach. Just don’t get it mixed up with the real thing. Although the recipe takes a little bit of technique, it is a great starter recipe for getting into hard candy making.
