Outdoor Summertime Eating

FAVORITE time of year. Simple meals based/planned around what I picked up on Saturday at the Farmer’s Market.  Seasonal fare.  Don’t you all love it?  Not processed. Naturally low in sodium, cholesterol, saturated fat, and without any artery-clogging trans fats. Excellent in fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and colorful antioxidants. Mother Nature’s bounty of food and nutrients, all nicely wrapped up in one neat package.

Although I have always known this, being in the nutrition and disease prevention field, it becomes clearer year after year after year. Most diseases and disorders in this country are the result of our processed food choices, the volume of food eaten, and the inactivity that makes up most our daily 24 hours. Financially this is bringing down this country, and the easiest, cheapest solution is by fork and shoe. Eat well. Walk daily.

Here are a few of the foods and meals that we have enjoyed recently, thanks to the Farmer’s Market!

Gorgeous mouth-watering oven-roasted cauliflower, broccoli, peppers and onions.

It was spritzed with this nifty Balsamic Vinegar product, and sprinkled with a touch of Parm cheese.

We cannot get enough of the fresh cukes. Sprinkled with apple cider vinegar and a touch of salt.
