Summer is the best season of the year—not only for the warm, sunny weather, but because of all the fresh fruits and vegetables. During her talk on Nutrition and Brain Health, Dr. Carol Greenwood recommended that half of our plate of food should be vegetables and fruit. And forget concentrating on the latest superfood—eat the fruit or vegetable that you like the best. Letting produce rot in your fridge will not be doing your body any good. Studies have shown that eating the fruit or vegetable is more beneficial than popping a vitamin.
