Sliced summer squash, russian kale, fennel, cucumber, basil, and flat-leaf parsley. Layered with my Hazelnut Ricotta and Sun Dried Tomato Sauce.
It took a few tries to get the proportions right, but after I figured out that a little bit of the ricotta and tomato sauces went a long way, I had it. A really interesting mix of delicate, cool flavors with the intense fresh herbs and tomato.

For breakfast this morning, I made a sweet, refreshing superfood smoothie that looked like a starry night sky.
Note: The following measurements are approximate—I just threw stuff in the blender.
2 small ripe bananas
1/3 cup blueberries
1 loose cup flat leaf parsley, whole leaves
2 T ground flax seeds
1/2 cup water
