Summer Eating

In Food and Health, Mindful Eating on June 11, 2016 at 11:25 am

Aren’t you glad summer is finally here? Warm weather, sunny days, long evenings to sip iced tea; what’s not to love? Another great thing about summer is all the fresh fruits and vegetables. In the winter, it can be expensive to feed a family with healthy choices. Many times frozen or canned is our only option, which is much better than nothing!

In summer, the fruits and vegetables are fresh and cheaper and it’s time to put them back in our diets every day. Experts recommend five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.
One reason is the fiber and vitamins and minerals that fruits and vegetables have. Another reason is to replace the meat and potatoes that caused all those winter pounds!
Remember, fresh is best, frozen is fine, canned is OK. Juice and dried fruits have much more sugar and should not be a regular part of anyone’s diet.
Enjoy the weather and the vegetables!
