"Part of the joy of eating is the anticipation of seasonal foods. For me, the first asparagus of spring or the first raspberries in the summer are cause for a celebration. Eating with the seasons helps ground us and reminds us of our connections to the earth" -John Ash
Summer: a time spent playing outdoors, spending more time with loved ones, and enjoying the bounty of delicious fruits and vegetables in season. Our bodies’ metabolism shifts with the seasons. During spring and summer, the sun's energy warms the body and we have less need to produce internal heat through the digestive system, so our appetite naturally decreases. With this, our bodies don't want or crave the hot and savory foods of winter. Here, I have provided a few summer snacks that not only are in season, but are also quick to make for yourself and your family!
