Eat Seasonally - SUMMER

Eat Seasonally - SUMMER

Summer is an amazing time for food!!  

Take this week to pile up on the plethora of produce available during the summer months. Why? Every bite into a tomato in the winter and think 'BLECH'; its mealy and tasteless and not worth eating! This is because eating foods when they are out of season reduces the quality; both taste and nutrient wise. 

#1 Goal for this challenge - Incorporate a summer seasonal food in each meal you eat!


What's in season?

  • Mangoes 
  • Corn
  • Tomatoes
  • Summer Squash + Zucchini
  • Avocados
  • Stone Fruit
  • Basil
  • Melon
  • Radish
  • Cucumber
  • Lemons
  • Berries 
  • Beets
  • Asparagus

And many more items!!!....  Learn more about what is in season near you HERE

Check out my summer grocery list to learn a little more about a few of these items.

Try this summer corn toast!!

Simply toast a hearty slice of whole grain/ sprouted bread and top with fresh ricotta, salt, pepper, grilled corn, and micogreens!
