As the summer temperatures and humidity skyrocket on the outskirts, my palate takes a nose-dive with my food choices. I’m less likely to cook heavy meals. I crave the light and easy.
Moreover, I tend to increase the amount of fruits in my daily dietary plan. Thanks to my neighborhood farmer’s market, I’m able to access relatively inexpensive fruits that are locally grown.
These wholesome foods help to replenish what I lost via perspiration and otherwise during the sizzling days. Fruits are loaded with nutrients like fibers, vitamins, potassium and others which are beneficial to the body.
You could say, these fruits and I have a great kinship.
