Healthy Bruschetta-The Seasonal Junkie

Can you believe it is the last bit of September? You guys, I’m coming to the conclusion that your late 20’s is a trap. If you blink at Christmas, you are likely to open your eyes and realize it’s Halloween. Seriously, where the eff did all the time go. I’m gearing up for Baylen’s 30th. And I know once that has come and passed, It’s just a whirlwind of holidays and I’ll be right back where I started. I’m gonna need some therapy… Some cheese therapy. Wait, I’m having a moment. I don’t think I have ever talked about my affinity for Bruschetta.

I just can’t believe, I’ve never posted about some Healthy Bruschetta!

Better late than never, a wise person once said? But seriously, at times some of my healthy bruschetta recipes are pretty much a food group. If you are not on board or the bruschetta board, if you will (ha. ha.), let me paint a picture for you.

I hope you are following me on Facebook, if you’re not do so here! 



& then… other delicious toppings= Healthy Bruschetta!

Another strong recommendation with healthy bruschetta is wine. But you do you. I’ll be over here doing wine!

The other great thing that is currently happening is Fall. Obviously, if you haven’t read my other recent posts you know that fall has a very special place in my heart. The temps get cooler and new foods are on the horizon, because plants can… you know… survive.

Now I’m sure you wondering why I put the healthy in front of my bruschetta. You’re probably like Brooke, bruschetta is not healthy. Well you just shh-hut your mouth, its healthy for my mind, okay. Some people have chocolate cake, some people have shoes, my mental health exercises include healthy bruschetta.

Judge me or Join me.

I’m fairly certain, you will enjoy the second option just a little bit more. Any who,  healthy bruschetta therapy is great for groups or even if your by yourself and it comes together so quick.

Soup is a great addition to bruschetta, check out my cajun corn chowder here!
