Hello friends and Happy August!
We have been running our Monthly Nourish series for almost a year now- how fun!
We hope it is inspiring you to try something new and include healthy foods at a pace that suits you!
Monthly Nourish for August is basically bruschetta in a list, because in Ontario these foods are fresh, in season and oh so delicious.
I hope you enjoy this month’s edition of Monthly Nourish and try to include these three foods in some news ways. Let us know what you make with the hashtag #monthlynourish.
Monthly Nourish | August
Tomatoes have been featured on Monthly Nourish before, but I couldn’t resist highlighting them again. Tomatoes are notably high in a phytochemical called lycopene. Lycopene is found in any fruit or vegetable that has a red pigment to it. Lycopene is known to been good for heart health, prostate health and skin health.
Basil is a powerful green that contains many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It is very nutrient dense, and a great option to include if you are a not a huge vegetable lover.
Vampires beware! Garlic contains powerful antioxidants, and the active ingredient, Allicin, is anti-inflammatory and great for our immune system. A fun fact, is that allicin is only released when garlic is crushed or chopped, not when consumed whole.
I hope you enjoyed this month of Monthly Nourish! Let us know what you make!
