This was too great not to share. The Greatist made this visual guide of how to best use the summer produce in soups, smoothies, as salad toppings, just raw in all of its natural glory…the list goes on. I had no idea that figs would be great in soup. (Might be time to make a cucumber-watermelon gazpacho…) The Greatist has guides for fruit AND vegetables — they even have a breakdown of all the benefits for each respective produce, such as why you should love them (even more than you already do), how to store them, and how to prepare/eat the produce. Check out the original article here — definitely worth a look! This would be a great time to check in at your local farmer’s market or at your local grocer’s and ask how best to use seasonal produce from your area.
