Ready for fresh veggies? Get healthy this summer since June is Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Month!
Today we have the Top 5 Fresh Veggies for summer.

Avocado. Who doesn't love an avocado in the summer?
There's so many options from the basic guacamole to a unique
avocado mac & cheese. In the hot summer, no one wants to turn
on the oven or stove. Avocados are great because they don't have
to be cooked, just throw them on a sandwich or add salt and
enjoy alone.

tomatoes, croutons, and dressing.
