So it’s good to know that berries are back for that explosion of natural sweetness in your mouth. Boysenberries, mulberries, blueberries and last but not least cherries. Yay! Remember, the fresher the better they are as an antioxidant. We will also be able to munch on mangoes, melons, papaya, paw paw, passion fruit, loquats and pineapple. Sweet corn with peas, and beans that give that fresh crunch in the mouth which I have missed during winter.
Yes, I am excited to think that apricots, grapes, lychees and peaches will be hitting my kitchen as my snacks of choice, along with raddish, asparagus and celery to go into the fridge to combat those hot summer evenings. Look out for the assortments of nuts to keep the protein up, along with the good oils found in them. Macadamias are always something to keep in mind to eat especially coming up to the festive season as they can help lower your cholesterol.
My mouth is watering just thinking about all of these yummy things. I think I’m going to have to scope out places like the Eveleigh Markets and Pyrmont Growers Market for organic goodies, as well as considering a subscription with Food Connect. I will also plan my shop so I can keep my food miles down, as that’s another way that I can help the environment but still have very fresh produce.
