Summer Sizzles - Fruit, Fun and Farmers Market

This is the time of year where "eating like a rainbow” is a no brainer.

You have heard it before, fruits and vegetables are not only good for you, they are your ticket to a lifetime of disease free health. They are not just for preventing disease, they provide essential nutrients and minerals that research has shown will ease chronic health conditions. In addition to research showing that a diet that is rich in fruit, veggies & fish keeps the doctor away, experts believe that pigments in fruits and leafy vegetables provide high levels of antioxidants.;postID=5975239027146959176
