Summer is an amazing time for refreshing produce all season long. With temperatures (and humidity) creeping up here in Jacksonville, here’s what you can grab next time you hit the grocery store. Berries, peaches, cucumbers, greens, and herbs are all in season for the month of July and present some great opportunities for cool and delicious summer meals and beverages. We all know how crucial water consumption is, especially with heavy sweat and time in the sun. But some get bored of water; switch it up with mint and cucumber infused water, or add a few berries for a healthy take on juice. With longer days, dinner cravings tend to long for lighter meals that require little time over the stove heating up the kitchen. For a light and easy summer dinner, toss fresh greens and herbs like cilantro or parsley with organic corn and fresh berries and your protein of choice. This makes a perfect summer evening meal you can enjoy anywhere!
