Eat the Rainbow for National Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Month

For the past two years, I've been bi-coastal - a few months in LA, a few months in New York, back to LA, you get the idea. Now, I'm in New York and one thing I really miss about Southern California is the farmers markets. It became tradition to spend Saturdays at the Santa Monica Farmers Market, grab some snacks, and hit the beach. No matter how many times I had visited the market, it never cease to amaze me the variety of fresh produce being sold. The size of the farmers market and quality of the produce is something we unfortunately don't have on Long Island.

But, I am lucky that it's summertime and fresh produce is within reach. Peaches, berries, and watermelon fit into all of my summer meals. They make delicious additions to oatmeal, yogurt, and salads. Plus, they even work well on the grill. A slice of grilled pineapple on top of a burger is heaven on a dish. Let's celebrate National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month by visiting the local farmers market, growing your own produce, or just taking a bite into your favorite fruits and veggies.

Here are some of my favorite fruit and veggie recipes.

Banana & Kale Smoothie

Raspberry & Mango Guacamole

Citrus Edamame Salad
