3 Fresh Ingredients for Summer
Healthy, Hot Weather Fare

I love tomatoes, but despise cucumbers, their smell makes me ill, actually. Peppers are ok, but after a good month of using summer veggies, the family tires of them, same kind of taste, etc. And they are good for you, but not anything will be cured just because you eat them, over stated magic people!!
AND tomatoes and peppers are on the current list of anti-angiogenic foods that not only help to "kill back" the unwanted blood supply to cancer tumors, but also fat cells. That's a great thing for us!! And they are so pretty on my white salad plate. AND nut butter and vine-ripened tomatoes on Joseph's flax pita bread is delicious. Now, I just might need to make a substitution on my menu plan for breakfast. Thanks for the article.
I use all three of these ingredients as much as possible. I also supplement and add spark (pun intended) to my dishes by adding fresh herbs from my garden: mint, taragon, basil, lemon thyme, parsley and cilantro. I have just an 11' x 6' balcony and grow lettuces, peas and all my own herbs, plus have room for decor items, two chairs and four 6 purely-for-my-enjoyment containers of seasonal blooms! If I can do it in this tiny amount of space, you can do it, too!
