Fruits of Summer

One of my absolute favorite things about the summertime is the abundance of delicious fruit. I hate the winter when fruit is astronomically expensive and just not up to par with summertime quality.

Over the last bunch of weeks, Shaun and I have been enjoying the fruits of summer like it's our job. Each week we stock up on lots of fruit goodies and proceed to devour it all. 

It's just one of those things that I simply don't mind spending some coin on. The season is so fleeting and what better snack than some of nature's candy?

Some of my favorites this season include:

Juicy, acidic pineapple

Sweet cantaloupe

Cherries (perhaps the most fleeting of them all) and bright, crunchy green grapes. To me, grapes are only sufficient when the skin is taut!

And not so much in the fruit category, but another healthy snack I've been enjoying...carrot chips! I love these so much more than baby carrots! They actually feel like you are eating chips. Sort of. Dipped in hummus, tzatziki or light onion dip, these are my new go-to carrots!

So that's a little glimpse into my snacks of choice lately. In fact, I'm about to devour some grapes, pineapple and cantaloupe right now!

Hope your Tuesday is off to a fantastic start my friends!
