The nights are getting cooler and the end of summer is in the air already!

Now is the time to dive into the bounty of fruits and veggies that are available from local farmers. Whole Foods Market has all the organic produce you are looking for and some delicious ideas on how to use the harvest that you have from your own gardens or the garden gifts from you neighbours!




Not just a winter veggie, Kale is a a great addition to this Waldolf salad replacing the traditional lettuce This version creates a vegan creamy dressing and packs a fibre and vitamin punch!

Whether it's from your own garden or your neighbours, zucchinis come fast and furious this time of year and you can only make so much zucchini bread! Thinly sliced zucchini fills in as a flavorful no-cook pasta in this refreshing salad for your next bbq or picnic. Enjoy with grilled sausages, on a grilled chicken sandwich or over a bed of mixed greens.

Start your day off right with a simple & delicious smoothie that packs fruit, veggies, yogurt and whole grains all in easy one sippable drink.  Plant based yogurt works really well here too!

Who says the grill is only for dinner? Grilling stone fruit brings out the wonderful sweetness. Try this dessert as an amazing summer treat! Make individual servings of the trifle using small ramekins, too.
