Summertime and the Eating is Easy

Summer brings an abundance of tasty and nutritious foods, including berries (loaded with antioxidants), tomatoes, sweet bell peppers (vitamin C), melons, peas, lettuce and much more.


Eating more fruits and vegetables year-round is a challenge. If we eat what’s recommended (5-9 servings of fruits and or vegetables) maybe we would eat less junk food!

Summer is a great time to explore local farmers markets. Since local produce doesn’t have to travel far, the prices are often lower. If your curious about our local farmers market click on these for more information.
