Summer produce is at its peak. There’s nothing like the taste of a tomato picked fresh from the garden or a bushel of juicy peaches from a local farm stand. At the Health Hub, we’re big fans of cooking with local, seasonal ingredients, whether home-grown or from one of Lancaster County’s many acclaimed farmers markets

Eating a diet that’s rich in fruits and vegetables is good for your heart, complexion, cancer prevention, inflammation, and overall health

To help you squeeze the most out of this season’s bounty, we searched our archives and rounded up our favorite recipes featuring the stars of summer. So gather your tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, peppers, eggplant, basil, peaches, nectarines and blueberries and try a few of these delicious, easy recipes.
