Summer is right around the corner and its time for another update about what's in season when it comes to your produce!

No excuses to destroy that summer body with all this wonderful produce readily and organically available to you!

  • Apples

  • Berries
  • Carrots
  • Cherries
  • Cilantro

An easy way to get all these amazing goodies into your diet is to create a soup or stew!

Just coat the bottom of your pot with some oil (Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Coconut Oil)
Light the stove top and add some onions, carrots, celery and garlic.
Add whatever veggies you desire and wait until they soften
Add chicken broth and water (1 cup chicken broth:2 cups water) As much as needed
Let sit on low heat for 45-50 minutes adding (lentils, beans, legumes of choice)
Add herbs as you stir (basil, cilantro...etc)
Stir every so often

Soup for the whole week!

Easy side dish or meal and stays good for about 5-7 days stored in the fridge
