This post is all about inner beauty, as in keeping your body beautiful by eating beautiful, good things. I’ll admit that I’m a little sad summer is coming to an end. I have loved the fun trips, but also the simple joys of summer – like strolling through the produce section at the store to find fresh fruits and vegetables that are actually affordable enough for me to add to our family menu.
I know it gets harder as the weather gets colder to keep fresh fruis and vegetables on the table. This is why I was particularly excited that after our weekend trip to my husband’s grandparent’s, they sent us home with a bucket full of goodies from their garden: apples, crookneck squash, sweet corn, peaches, and tomatoes. Yum! I know the time to savor all of these fresh jewels is coming to a close, so here is a quick cheat sheet to see how much longer you’ll be able to enjoy the fruits and veggies of the summer. Enjoy Mother Nature’s bounty while you can!
