Light, Heat, Action, It’s Summer!

Have you ever noticed how tomatoes are much juicier and tastier in summertime?
That’s because they’re in season!
And I know, it might be difficult NOT having tomatoes in winter but I’m sure you agree they don’t taste as juicy and they’re not as aromatic.
Besides the health benefits you can gain by eating in season, seasonal foods typically taste better and are more nutritionally dense. 
Not to mention that they’re better for the environment and easier on your pocket.
So it’s all about knowing when certain fruits and vegetables grow naturally in your climate, and then eating them only or mostly in those seasons.

If like me you’re welcoming the summer season then this list from the USDA can be a helpful guide:

When the sun is shining and the heat is on, the last thing you want to do is to spend hours in the kitchen over a hot boiling stove, so aim for lighter food choices that are quick to make and refreshing.
You don’t have to drink smoothies all summer or just eat raw salad, but overall opt-in for recipes and food choices that are lighter and take advantage of the abundance of tasty summer fruits and vegetables.

Love,
