Dr. Morrison’s Summer Grocery List

June 30, 2022

Seasonal shopping is a breeze during the summertime because the warm weather brings us a beautiful variety of fruits and vegetables for your table. Keep reading for what we suggest keeping at the top of your grocery list.

Berry Good for You

Our favorite phytonutrient-dense fruits are in season! Blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries are packed with antioxidants and vitamins to support a healthy immune system. Choose organic berries at your local farmers market or grocery store! If berries aren’t always easily available, you can add a scoop of Daily Greens powder to your daily routine for an antioxidant boost.*

Don’t Miss a Beet

Seriously, don’t miss out on fresh beets this summer! This heart-healthy root vegetable is also great for the gut, immune system, impaired circulation, and aging health. For a more eco-friendly buy, get beets with the beet greens attached. You can snip them off and cook them like you would with chard or kale. Don’t like the taste of beets? We recommend neo40 by HumanN for the benefits of beetroot in a lozenge.*

Water You Can Eat

Produce like bell peppers, celery, cucumbers, watermelon, and zucchini are abundant in the summer and also make great hydrating food choices during this hot season. (It’s almost like Mother Nature knows what she’s doing). If you’re chugging plain water to quench your thirst, consider adding a dropperful of SpectraMin or a capful of MicroMinerals to your water bottle for a healthy balance of electrolytes.*

Herbs: They’re Kind of a Big Dill

No grocery list is complete without a bunch of herbs, and summer is the best time to get your hands on fresh herbs. You can easily find (or grow) fresh basil, dill, parsley, sage, chives, culantro, mint, oregano, and rosemary. Graze on them. Add them to salads. Blend them in shakes. Use them to marinate meats. Need help with incorporating more herbs into your meal plan? Connect with one of our nutrition experts for a more individualized plan.

How seasonal is your meal plan?

Seasonal eating allows us to include more organic, fresh produce in a sustainable manner according to nature’s rhythm. Fruits and vegetables are allowed to ripen naturally, thus providing more nutrients and tasting better. Our health coaches can work with you to develop a personalized approach to seamlessly incorporate more seasonal foods into your lifestyle. Call our office to find out more: 212-989-9828.
