I’ve been super focused lately on eating seasonally and locally. In Switzerland we’re lucky enough to get amazing produce grown right here in the country, and I’ve decided to fully embrace that. That might mean giving up bananas and avocados for the time being, but hey, with deliciously sweet berries and stone fruit freakin everywhere, I can’t complain. This month I’ve decided to focus on melon. Cantaloupe melon is an amazing source of vitamin A & C while having anti-inflammatory properties. Honeydew melon is rich in potassium (so ciaaaoo nanas, hello honeydew 😉 while watermelon is hella hydrating (perfect for hot summer days since they’re over 90% water). So all in all, go grab some melons (can’t say that with a straight face), and dig in. If you’re looking for some inspo on what do with them, check out my recipes and ideas below!
