Mother Nature’s Best

Anyone who loves to eat should love the month of August because that’s when dear Mother Earth produces some of her best work.
You know we’re big fans of the watermelon, and it’s not just because every kid loves it. Watermelons are filled to the brim with the antioxidant lycopene, they’re rich in vitamins C, B1, B6 and A, and are an excellent hydrator (made from 92 percent water after all).

Don’t get us started on peaches. They are juicy and perfect in a classic peach and mixed berry crisp. They’re also great on yogurt and ice cream but we like them grilled on the Q with pork or chicken. Peaches are a good source of dietary fiber, Vitamin A, Niacin and Potassium, and are a very good source of Vitamin C.
