As we start to creep into the summer months, it’s time to take a look at the local produce that will be available in the month of June:
Cherries – Both sweet and tart, cherries are a great fruit to add to any dessert dish! They are excellent in relieving inflammation and balancing blood sugar.
Cucumbers – This low calorie, hydrating vegetable is not only a delicious snack, but can add extra crunch to your salads this summer.
Cauliflower – This popular veggie is packed with immune-boosting elements, and can also act as a good meat substitution for your meals – cauliflower tacos, anyone?
Kale – Probably the most talked about leafy green out there – and for good reason! Kale is packed with vitamins, nutrient, minerals, antioxidants… the list goes on! Roast it in the oven with a little sea salt and olive oil for a great potato chip substitute.
Spinach – The perfect base for any smoothie for its subtle flavour, spinach contains a high amount of iron, protein and B vitamins.
Green onions – These onions bump up the flavour profile in any savoury meal, and are also full of antibacterial and cancer-fighting properties.
