There is never a better time to fill up on fruits and vegetables than in the summertime. They’re brightly colored, refreshing, and abundant. But the season won’t last much longer, so we’re taking advantage of the nature-made goodness while we can and inviting you to get fresh with us.
This week, make one meal of each day – breakfast, lunch or dinner – completely raw. Fill it with fruit, veggies, herbs, nuts, seeds, grains, and legumes. Chop, peel, dehydrate, toss, soak, sprout, and blend to your heart’s content. But opt out of the stovetop, the grill, the microwave, and the oven. Heat-free prep will preserve more of the ingredients temperature-sensitive enzymes, antioxidants, and micronutrients while giving you a cool, refreshing nutritional boost during these last warm-weather months.
