Many experts agree that summer provides you with some of the most perfect foods of the entire year are at their prime during the summer months.
“I always tell patients that if they are outside in the fresh air, they should be consuming foods that are fresh and found in nature — like vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts, legumes and water instead of processed foods created in labs and factories,” says Katherine Farrell Harris, director of Integrated Nutrition for AdvantageCare Physicians.
Just some of the top foods of summer include:
Corn salad: Corn is high-fiber, low-calorie, and the white version is rich in Vitamin A. Throw in some antioxidant-packed bell peppers, along with some diced onion, to make a deliciously healthy side salad.
