Summer Fruits and Vegetables in Season - September 2019

When is your favourite fruit or vegetable in season?

By Nature and Wildlife Articles

There's nothing healthier than fresh fruits and vegetables. You can get these at your local supermarket, or from the proliferation of summertime roadside stands.

The high fiber content of fruits and vegetables is excellent for flushing toxic residues out of the body.Here are the dates for the more popular summer fruits and vegetables.

Try to buy produce that is as fresh as you can get it and buy organic fruit and veg where possible, as they obviously have fewer toxins. A good greengrocer will usually have much fresher fruits and vegetables than the large supermarket chains. The fresher the good, the higher the nutritional value. Fresh herbs are also full of healthful properties, so use them liberally. The ideal, of course, is to grow your own herbs and vegetables, but this is not possible for most of us.

Wellness Tip
Addressing Muscle Soreness
The smartest way to address muscle soreness is to avoid it. When starting a new training program, or upgrading an existing one, go into it gradually. Take several weeks, even longer if necessary. Should you experience soreness along the way, give your muscles a day or two of rest to recover.

Recipe
Zucchini and Scallions Fritters
Category: Breakfast
Description: There is a new fan favorite in my house for the best way to put the summer zucchini surplus to use, and it comes in the form of zucchini fritters. Best of all, you only need five ingredients and 25 minutes to go from everyday veggie to all-star appetizer, side dish or snack.
The setup is simple: Grated zucchini joins forces with sliced scallions, flour and eggs. Patties are formed and pan-fried then served hot alongside a refreshing dollop of sour cream. These fritters-slash-pancakes (inspired by their culinary cousin, Leftover Mashed Potato Pancakes) make any topping or dunkable sauce fair game, from roasted garlic aioli to tahini yogurt dip. But no matter how you stack ’em, top ’em, slice ’em or serve ’em, one thing is certain: Just a taste isn’t enough when it comes to hot and crispy zucchini fritters.
