innovative_use_of_fresh_summer_produce One of the best things about summer is the wide array of fresh fruits, veggies and herbs that can be found readily available at grocery stores, backyard gardens, farmers markets and the roadside stands that pepper streets throughout town. Cashing in on this opportunity means more impressive (and more nutritious) recipes can be added to your repertoire for summer barbecues and get-togethers.

I have been on the hunt for some new flavorful recipes that take advantage of this season’s harvest. Here are some interesting ones that I thought sounded pretty darn good:

Smoothies:

Hi, I am Melissa! I’m a Registered, Licensed Dietitian and I have been the Nutrition Specialist for Great Harvest since December of 2010. I got my start in nutrition at Colorado State University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Food Science with a focus in Dietetics. I went on to graduate from the Dietetic Internship Program at the Baptist Health System in San Antonio and then work as a Medical Nutrition Specialist in Houston. My love of the outdoors and the opportunity to work at one of Outside Magazine’s Top 100 Best Places to Work brought me to Montana and Great Harvest. My favorite part of my job is being able to work with an amazing group of fun and intellectual individuals who are passionate about making healthy eating a delicious experience while giving back to communities across the country.
