Eat the Seasons | July

We’ve had some warm weather out there lately, but luckily this summer heat has brought us an eruption of fresh fruits and vegetables flowing out from every garden and farm across this beautiful planet.

I dread summer’s approach every year, because I cannot stand to be hot and dare I say drenched in sweat. However, my love of a great summer harvest forces me to embrace this heat, head out to the sun-drenched farmers’ markets and load up on fresh snap peas, corn, cucumbers, melons, peppers, tomatoes, summer squash and so much more.

Let’s be honest, summer doesn’t last very long, so you’ve got to indulge while you can. Pretty soon we will be picking out the perfect pumpkin to carve and baking up a bazillion apple pies. Not that I’m complaining. Fall is, after all, one of my favorite times of the year.

So here’s to you Summer Heat, for providing us with so many healthy, vitamin-packed options to cook with. I may not like what you do to my hair (that frizz comes out in full force) but I do like what you bring to the table. And with that, I thank you! Now let’s cook!
