Seasonal Fruits: June
June, it starts to get warmer, we sweat more, we are more thirsty and less hungry. Basically, our body’s needs change, so we recommend always choosing seasonal foods as a mainstay of our diet. Nature is wise and so are our bodies, so we believe that listening to both of them is the best thing a body can do to take care of its wellbeing.
We leave here a small summary of a few seasonal fruits of the month of June with a brief description of the main properties of each one.
