Farmers Garden Stuffed Pimiento Cheese Veggie Burger
We’ve said it before, but we believe it’s essential to spend as much time outdoors in the summer as possible. Being from New England, we know too well how long the winters can be, and therefore how important it is to take advantage of the warm temperatures and outdoor sunshine summer can bring.
What does that mean? Bringing our workouts to the great outdoors. Spending cool nights reading on the porch rather than the couch. Heading out to a restaurant with an outdoor patio. Going on long walks on Sunday mornings. And of course, enjoying delicious meals with friends and family in the backyard.
One of our favorite ways to spend the summer is eating our meals outside. There’s something unique and measurable in bringing your dinner outdoors to bask in the sunlight while you eat a delicious, healthy meal. It somehow seems to connect you to the nature that brought you the food you’re eating, solidifying the connection between your food and where it came from. There’s solace and wonder in connecting with the earth that provides you with so much life.
In that vein, summer is also a great time to grab some fresh, delicious veggies from the farmers’ market or your very own garden. The season is ripe with freshly picked zucchinis, summer squash, corn, berries, and greens galore. Head to a farmers’ market this weekend and you’ll see nearly all the stands teeming with colorful produce. Go into the backyard to your very own garden and watch as the fruits of your labor come to life.
