As we are halfway through the month of May and farmers’ markets are opening everywhere, it’s time for nearly summer dinners.

Driving out of state last weekend, I came across multiple farmers’ markets with their bright tents, beautiful flowers, and healthy, fresh vegetables.

It was all I could do to keep myself from stopping and shopping!

This week, I’m taking dinner inspiration from my post “What to Cook in May: Produce and Recipes.” It’s packed with seasonal recipes and ideas.

I don’t want May to pass by without highlighting these delicious vegetables.

What’s In Season for May?

A Mediterranean Diet Style of Eating

I’m currently reading “Mediterranean Every Day” by Sheela Prakash. I love her take on healthy eating when she says:

“As a registered dietitian, I am constantly asked for advice on how to eat or how to achieve particular health goals, and my answer is always the same: everything in moderation.”

And then she writes that the Mediterranean Diet is about feel-good, colorful ingredients, about using what you have on hand, “which means it’s just as much about seasonality and well-rounded eating as it is about leaning on the pantry.”

Have a great week!
