Summer’s Best Dishes

Summer is in full swing! We hope you are enjoying warmer weather, outdoor activities, and seasonal delights!

With summer comes new fresh produce that we all love..watermelon, nectarines, peaches, mangoes, strawberries, apples and avocados. Artichokes, corn, zucchini, summer squash, beets, and cauliflower are some notable summer veggies. We know that summer is filled with lots of BBQ’s, parties, and beach or lake time.

Here are some fun ideas to make your Fresh ‘n Lean meals your own – to take for a BBQ, picnic, or simply a summer’s eve dinner for your self!

  2. Try converting one of our quinoa dishes into a summer salad! simply mix 1 quinoa meal with organic arugula or spinach, some cherry tomatoes, cucumber, olive oil, and fresh squeezed lemon juice.
