It’s not often these road stands offers organic berries, but today they did. I grabbed the last box of organic strawberries, brought home, rinsed, chopped up and put in the freezer. Perfect for summer smoothies.
Watermelon season are getting closer. It could be my favorite thing to drink in the summer. I prefer to blend whole chunks and then just drink it straight up. Maybe with some fresh mint and that’s it. Watermelon is so hydrating and alkalizing for the body. Cheers!
My new favorite beverage at the moment belongs on the picnic table. It’s so easy to make your own vitamin water just by adding some fresh herbs, fruits and berries. Even veggies can be dropped down the jars. Drinking water with healing herbs and antioxidants from fresh berries is not only nutritious and delicious, it looks nice as well.
Here is the beach picnic recipes I promised. The sandwiches are delicious. All ingredients are picked up at the farmers market in Ojai. Why would I go all the way up there to shop for a picnic? Why not?
I also picked up a freshly baked country sourdough for the sandwiches at one of the healthy eateries in town called “farmer and the cook”. Nothing beats a good farmers market or delicious bread coming straight out of the oven for that matter. Enjoy!
