Have you noticed how the position of the sun has traveled into the northern skyline, and how that makes the early and late day light particularly beautiful? I’ve heard that those enormous strawberries you find this time of year at the market come from Alaska – giants grown from the sunshine they soak up for nearly 24 hours a day this time of year.

I’ve been busy with some other writing projects, but have kept my commitment to myself to eat fresh and local healthy food. This time of year, especially, I crave simple fresh food. No formal recipes needed for these yummy meals.
Above: Breakkast egg white & bean salad burrito with parsley & yogurt
Above: Whole Foods-brand tomato basil soup (chilled) with zucchini/squash zoodles (also at Whole Foods pre-made in the produce section) with parmesan & drizzle of olive oil & lots of pepper.
Above: This is my no-fail go-to recipe for hot summer evening meals. Combine olive oil, salt, pepper, and lots of lemon juice with dried thyme. Marinate chicken for at least an hour, reserving some for dressing. Grill chicken. Rest 5 minutes; covered. Slice and serve with bell peppers & pour reserved marinade over top. Summer on a plate.
