I love summer fruit and veggies
Love my veggies!!! Fruits, too.
Peeled cucumber for dinner today - 12 yr. old grandson loves them
Also put tomato wedges and celery sticks on plate.
We eat lots of both vegetables and fruits!
No one that I know EVER would be "wowed" by lousy cucumber or celery, fresh from the garden or whatever, just saying their names brings cold chills to the tummy...............
I agree: where is the watermelon?! And where are the BLUEBERRIES????!!!!!!! I thought blueberries would be front and center on a list of healthy summer fruit & veggies.... Maybe I just live in a heavy blueberry area.
Watermelon...not on the list?
Loved the article. Great things.
My mother used to go the farmer's market every Saturday morning and then come home and boil up the beets. We'd eat them as soon as they were cool enough! Fond memories of a wonderful mother and healthy food! Those were simple pleasures. She passed August 1, 2010, and every time I do something she used to do with us, I honor her by remembering her to others around me! She was a evangelical Christian woman who fought to the last day of her life for people to know that Jesus Christ loves each person and died for you all! God bless you!
I need to hurry up and get to me a farmers market. My brothers are farmers and they grow veggies, but I always have to wait until mid August before the garden is ready.
great idea! I need to go back to my local farmer's market ;)
I remember having to eat seasonally growing up since we didn't have the luxury of shipping foods from other countries. That was the way it was until about the 80's. So it's funny how now we are going back to eating that way.
Great ideas! I was needing some "fresh" ones!
I love summer foods. Thanks for this quick reference and ideas
Great Article. I love fresh summer produce, blueberries, strawberries, corn on the cob, fresh zucchini and summer squash.
thank you this was very good to remind us all to support our farms in the area.. and to eat healthier.
Very helpful! Thank you for the great summer suggestions. New to shopping for the family and aiming to guide them to healthier food finds. :) Love the ideas for the fruits and veggies.
