Summer Foods Incorporated

So, this really isn’t rocket science, I know…
Most of you are more than likely already incorporating summer foods into your diet without needing any assistance. But sometimes getting a little reminder on how you can add a few more fresh summer fruits and veggies into your favorite meals really helps.

The key to remember is that a little goes a long way. I used to think that bringing home a container of berries meant that I had to eat the whole carton in one sitting to get the benefits of the fruit. However, if you spread your intake from breakfast to lunch to dinner and beyond, you can add some fresh summer foods easily.

In the morning, grab your favorite fruit and toss it on top of your cereal. Only have half a banana left over from the fruit smoothie you made last night? Great: toss it in! But you don’t have to stop there.
Other good choices are blueberries, strawberries, and even raisins or dried cranberries.

For lunch you can try a fresh tomato and cucumber sandwich served with hummus spread and a slice of cantaloupe on the side. When dinner time rolls around, consider grilling some chicken breasts and toss them in a salad made with fresh lettuce, carrots, tangerine & grapefruit slices, and cubed avocado. Put it on the table next to a fresh glass of homemade lemonade (or favorite white wine) and enjoy!

Until next time – Live Life Well,
