A Summer to Savor

vegan popsicle
Apricots, avocados, berries and tomatoes! Summer is a season of rich colors and juicy bites: mother earth’s invitation to savor.

Seize this opportunity to walk warmth and refreshing summer rain. Inhale the sweet smells of pollen, flowers, herbs, and ripe fruit. Treat yourself to the farmers market and take your time. Peruse each stall that interests you and inspect the items you choose with care.

With thoughtful presence, contribute your own creativity to the beauty that surrounds you. Take pleasure in arranging a fruit bowl mosaic. Invite your friends over for dinner in the back yard. Pick fresh flowers for the table and light the tiki torches.

Take advantage of the bountiful local produce and experiment with fun seasonal recipes, like these deliciously refreshing home made popsicles, shared with us by talented Vegan blogger Ashley. So simple, and yet – such a treat.
