New Summer Eating Habits

fresh produce in McHenryEvery summer we see more and more fresh food markets pop up around our McHenry County real estate, from large farm stands to small privately owned vegetables from smaller gardens. What we all know is that fresh locally grown foods are not only delicious but also good for you. That’s why summer is the perfect time to adjust our eating habits and enjoy all of the fresh foods that are only available at this time of year: the flavorful, wholesome kind that when prepared at the peak of the season brings the yum factor as well as the chance that the family will bond together around the dinner table. Sweet Corn is a perfect example:  served up with a large green salad and some fresh fruit and you’ll see the joy in your family’s faces. They not only truly enjoy what you’ve prepared, but they are eating and sharing a great healthy meal together! No meat, no fast food, just a good healthy yummy meal TOGETHER!

McHenry County is loaded with opportunities for delicious meals created using flavorful ingredients that are grown locally and in season!
