We are in the middle of the summer season this year. As the weather gets hotter, do not let the heat affect your appetite or desire to eat! People often tend to eat lighter and cooler food during hot weather, but this is not always enough. The sweet and sour flavor from tomatoes makes a good supplement. Here at Each Green Corner, we want to help our local communities to eat healthy and get the nutrients necessary for the body even during this hot season. Here are some delicious and light recipe recommendations!
