Summer is in full swing and Carrie Underwood is reaping the benefits. The 34-year-old country music superstar shared a delicious summer snack recipe to Instagram on Sunday that looked an awful lot like Caprese salad... minus the mozzarella.
"From my Aunt Donna's tomato plants...basil from my 'garden' on the back porch," she wrote in the caption. "Just add salt and pepper or some balsamic if you're feeling frisky...yum! Such a perfect summer side!"
The perfect light snack recipe comes just a few days after the mom of one shared a lakeside bikini photo, proving that she had a quintessential American summer weekend. Looking flawless in her orange Calia by Carrie Underwood bikini, Underwood shared with fans an inspiring message that read, “Summertime is all about love…love for people, love for the outdoors and love for living in the moment. Get out there and relax!”
From her tasty foodie posts to her sculpted bikini selfies, Underwood is the epitome of summer goals this season. She told Pop Culture Media that she tries to get some form of exercise in every day.
"I have to make myself and my health a priority," she said. "There are 24 hours in a day. I try to devote at least part of one of them (maybe even a whole hour if I’m lucky) to physical activity. Sometimes that means the little guy has to be a part of it. But, lucky for me, Isaiah loves going for walks/jogs, so he often comes along!"
She also said that she's into simple workouts that get her heart beat up.
"I love running and doing things like squats, lunges, planks, and pushups. I don’t need any fancy equipment…I can make an amazing work out with my own body weight and a Tabata timer (app on my phone) and I can do it anywhere!"
Underwood says that's she's motivated to stay in shape so that her 2-year-old son with NHL husband Mike Fisher can grow up with a good example.
"I think it’ll be good for him as he grows up to see parents who take their health seriously," she told Pop Culture Media. "Mike and I both want to be around for him as long as we can…it might sound strange to think about that now when we’re only in our 30s, but better to prevent illness now than try to fight it later in life."
