Healthy Breakfast + Avocado Pesto + Summer Cocktail

I recently started working with a trainer/ nutritionist.  She told me that I really needed to start eating breakfast.  Not easy for me but I'm trying…. These are a few things I have been eating in the mornings.

Plain Greek Yogurt
Sliced Peaches
Sliced & Toasted Almonds
Sprinkle of Cinnamon
Layer ingredients in bowl and enjoy!

Avocado Pesto 
2 small avocados, diced
1 1/2 cups basil
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Juice of 2 lemons
2 cloves of garlic
3-4 tbsp olive oil
Salt & Pepper
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend well.  For lunch or dinner I put this on zucchini noodles.  For breakfast this is great on Ezekiel toast with hard-boiled eggs and some hot sauce.

My friend Erica came up with this cocktail. I added the lime to cut the sweetness.  It's super refreshing and tastes like summer in a glass but without all of the calories of a pina colada.
Summer Cocktail
2 oz Coconut Rum (I use Malibu)
Dasani Sparkling Tropical Pineapple
Juice or 1/4 or 1/2 of a lime
Mix all together over ice!

Enjoy the last moments of summer!
