Add these veggies to your summer diet and your body will thank you! Eating seasonally is the best way to ensure you’re getting the full nutritional value from each veggie you crunch down on. Crack out your chopping board, sharpen your knives, and prepare some fresh dishes featuring these summer treats.
With high levels of Vitamin A, B and C… okra is a power packed veggie that will supercharge your summer diet. While okra shines like a star in dishes like gumbo, it holds up well when cooked on the grill, stuffed, and you can fry it when you’re feeling crazy! Create a sneaky side dish by steaming it with some salt for 10 minutes max.
Full of dietary fiber and other wonderful nutrients, eggplant (or aubergine) has such a light flavor, it’s easily incorporated into many meals. Create some hearty vegetarian sandwiches or roast and puree for a smooth dip that will impress friends at any cookout.
We aren’t going to list all the vitamins in spinach, but just know, there are A LOT. Did you know that cooking or blending this leafy green will make it easier for your body to soak in all the nutrients? So start blending those morning green smoothies and sautéing for dinners.
Full of antioxidants with anti-inflammatory benefits, peppers are a bright and crunchy snack. Choose a red one for the most vitamins, but really any will do. Chop them into rings and fry an egg inside them at breakfast, stuff them with tasty dips, and just use their wonderful shape as a hummus scoop. There are so many options!
