Eating fruits and veggies when they are in season is beneficial for so many reasons; their abundance makes them cheaper to buy, the nutrient content is better when the product is fresh and there is a higher chance of you finding organic versions down your local farmers' market.
‘Abundance’ is the right word to use to describe the variety of produce available in the British summertime. You will come back from the market with arms full of fruit and veg, and your mind brimming with ideas of dishes to make.
I love anything with berries in and not to mention that they are packed full of vitamins and antioxidants. Summer brings a variety of fresh berries coming into season; from sweet blueberries and strawberries to tangy raspberries and loganberries. Sprinkle them on your breakfast, whip them into a dessert or bake them into something naughty but nice.
Summer sees an incredible array of veggies coming into season and if you have your own veg patch I suspect you will be trying to find every which way to use them! Why not make a beautiful rainbow salad for dinner with fresh lettuce, beetroot, cucumbers, tomatoes and radishes, topped with a side of homemade guacamole.
Courgettes are a king of the clean eating world; you can use them in anything! Finely grate some into your oats, stir them into a hearty chilli or whip up treats such as our dreamy vegan dark chocolate and raspberry brownies.
