Don’t you just love summer?? Well it is finally here, July wasn’t so great, but August feels like summer finally!!!
One of the reasons, and there are many, but just one reason why I love summer is the markets…….I love seeing all the fresh foods.
I takes me back to my childhood when I was little growing up in Ontario and my grandparents and great grandparents had a huge garden. I spent many afternoons there playing as my mom and grandmother picked and picked so we could eat fresh food, little did we know at the time organic…..plus freezing and canning it for the winter months.
It is so much easier to eat healthier in the summer months when we can either grow our own food or support our local farmers and head to the market. Its great to see what is really in season as well and mix things up accordingly.
Make a Zucchini Pasta and mix it up to your liking……getting more ‘raw’ into your summer!!
Great time to stock up on fresh organic garlic and Basil is abundant as well, so Pesto is good to make too and will keep in the fridge for a little while.
I got this for our salad Saturday night, and treated myself to some nice fresh raw chevre cheese and added some herbs with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar and it was nice, and yes a nice glass of wine too!! 🙂
