Seasonal Summer Recipes

Heirloom Tomatoes

It's such a joy to see more and more people of all ages, young and old alike, making better food and eating choices! More and more folks seem to be embracing their own home grown gardens, local farmstands, farmers markets and what our hard working growers of the land and catchers of the sea bring to us. My hope as you read this, is that you will check in with yourself and those closest to you, as you travel or stay at home this summer, and look to see how you can shop truly local and embrace what's around you.

Glorious Greens
Green vegetables are the foods most missing in modern diets. Learning to cook and eat greens is essential to creating health. When you nourish yourself with greens, you will naturally crowd out the foods that make you sick. Greens help build your internal rain forest and strengthen the blood and respiratory systems. They are especially good for city people who rarely see fields of green in open countryside. Green is associated with spring, the time of renewal, refreshment and vital energy. In Asian medicine, green is related to the liver, emotional stability and creativity.
