Summer is abundant with nutrition-rich fresh fruits and vegetables. Take advantage by keeping the refrigerator well stocked with snack size servings of fresh carrots, colorful bell peppers and bite-size pieces of broccoli and cauliflower.
Likewise, if you’ve ever had the pleasure of picking berries from the garden or the wild, you already know how wonderful fresh berries are. They are a delicious natural source of protective antioxidants. In fact, did you know that one cup of sliced strawberries contains almost as much vitamin C as one cup of orange juice?
