Three Easy & Delicious Seasonal Dishes to Enjoy this Summer!

Eating seasonal foods is one of the best things you can do for your health. Seasonal produce is picked when it’s ripe (so plants get extra sun-time), and it generally has more antioxidants, more color and more flavor!

Where I am now, it's mid-summer, and I’m blessed to have a ton of fresh, locally-grown summer vegetables to enjoy. I encourage you to visit your local farmers market and stock up on seasonal produce; not only are you doing your body a favor, you’re supporting local farmers as well (and not paying the cost of transportation that you pay for out-of-season, non-local produce)!

Some of my favorite summer veggies include: arugula, avocados, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, summer squash, corn and green beans. Cucumber is another refreshing, healthy summer veggie. While I admit it isn't my favorite, I have found a recipe that I LOVE with cucumbers (and I bet you will, too!), which I will share with you today!  

Here are 3 easy, light, refreshing and flavorful recipes using my favorite summer veggies. All 3 recipes are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free and with no added sugars. And of course, they're all amazing for your digestion, and will leave you bloat-free for an amazing beach body!




And for a delicious dessert or snack in the summer, I LOVE fresh figs. They're so sweet and yummy! Just rinse, peel, slice in half, and enjoy!
