Seasonal Food Guide for July


This is the time of year I start getting down right giddy about the fruits and vegetables in season. If you’re not already on the bandwagon of eating seasonal, or trying to eat what is fresh and ripe in your area every month, this is the time to start! I’m spotting fresh cherries at our local farmers market, tons of corn for super cheap (great for freezing), and it seems like there’s just not enough time in the day to consume as many fresh berries as I would like to!

During the summer we heighten our sense of awareness, whether we are aware of it or not. We watch our kids grow, and savor every bright flavor of the season. Today I’m leaving you with tons of recipes using all of the best produce available in July. The produce guide above is one to save to your desktop computer as a reminder of what’s fresh this month. The image at the bottom of the post is one made for a phone screensaver. I hope you all get a beautiful taste of this new season!
