it's summertime! sunshine, longer days, warmer evenings and time for seasonal fruits and vegetables. let's face it, we all tend to eat healthier in the summer and there's a lot of good reasons for that [and for the rest of the year, too!].
since it's hot, fresh food tastes better and it's a great way to stay hydrated. fruits like watermelon, strawberries and grapefruit are packed with water and vitamins. it's the perfect way to boost your nutrition and help prevent dehydration.
besides that, it’s good for the planet! unprocessed, locally sourced foods, such as fruits and vegetables, have a relatively low carbon footprint. even a good salad doesn't require nearly as much energy to process and contributes to fewer greenhouse gas emissions.
there are plenty of healthy, fresh, whole foods everywhere. we're focusing on local, seasonal summer produce! they are so pleasing to the eye and come in all shapes and sizes. the more beautiful the plate is, the more you're going to enjoy eating it.
summer is the perfect time to enjoy delicious meals with family and friends. whether it's an outdoor barbecue, a pool party, or a picnic in the park, food is always at the center of summer celebrations. from fresh fruit and salads to grilled meats and seafood, the possibilities are endless when it comes to summer cooking. what's better than enjoying a great meal with our loved ones on a warm summer day? it's truly one of life's simplest and most enjoyable pleasures.
