PCOS Divas eat with the season, and I am happy to announce that summer fruit is bountiful!
From stone fruits (peaches, cherries, plums, and apricots) to a wide variety of berries, these delectable fruits are plentiful at this time of year which means they are at their freshest in your local market and farmer’s market. I always try to eat with the season because that is when fruits and vegetables tend to be the most flavorful and inexpensive.
Fruit is an important component of the PCOS Diva diet. While it does contain sugar, and should be consumed in moderation, fruit makes a satisfying dessert or garnish. Fruit is packed with vitamins, fiber, and nutrients, especially berries which are loaded with antioxidants.
In celebration of the season, I created these summer fruit recipes that my family loved! I hope you will too.
