Why we love Rustic Tomato Basil Tart Recipe

Today’s Rustic Tomato Basil Tart Recipe brings summer to the table. I love when fresh tomatoes and basil are so readily available everywhere, especially if you grow a garden.

I adore tomatoes and basil paired together… so flavorful and delicious; the perfect compliment to each other!

Simple to make Rustic Tomato Basil Tart Recipe

I love this recipe because it’s simple to make, it uses a pre-made pie crust which you can make up a batch of pie crust easy enough to but it’s one more step if you are in a crunch for time.

This recipe is amazing with our Homemade Pesto or feel free to grab a fresh container in the produce section of the grocery store if that works better for your day.

Fit Friday with Nichole

 The sun is shining and trails are still calling my name, actually the call is even getting stronger with the start of school getting closer.

With all of my kids being in school full time this year I have already decided that the trails will be getting some extra visits before winter comes. No racing home for kindergarten pickup at 10:45 for me this year!

Trails, running, walking my dogs, bringing in the groceries, living life all take core work. Your core is your power house! 

A strong core also enhances balance and stability. Thus, it can help prevent falls and injuries during sports or other activities. In fact, a strong, flexible core underpins almost everything you do – The Real World Benefits of Strengthening Your Core. Harvard Medical School. 

Today we are putting some core into the mix. I love throwing in these core workouts for you to add on to other days. I get bored with core so quickly that I have to keep it varied, having quite a few of these in my wheel house makes it more fun.

There are three different sets in this workout. Repeat each set 2-4 times depending on how you are feeling, time, etc.
