|COLOR IT SUMMER – A RAINBOW OF GOODNESS ON YOUR PLATE
Not only is summer a great time to hit the beach, have barbecues, ride bikes and enjoy the sun, its the season when fresh fruits and vegetables are abundant and inexpensive. There is nothing better when it’s hot outside than a cool salad, yogurt with fruit or marinated veggies on the grill.
The bonus, of course, is that fruits and vegetables are so good for you. Fruits and vegetables are chock full of vitamins and minerals A, C, B12, iron, potassium and so much more, which will make you feel and stay healthy all summer long.
|CHEFS AND THE CITY 2016
It was an evening of delicious bites, music, raffles and cocktails at Chefs and the City on June 2 at the Montgomery Club. With more than 250 foodies in attendance, the event proceeds will fund HHO’s HIV and AIDS services.
Hosted by HHO’s Junior Networking Committee and Heartland Alliance’s Associate Board, the event brought together 15 chefs from Chicago’s hottest fine dining, bistro and gastropub restaurants. Major event sponsors include Ariel Investments, Fortune Fish and Gourmet, Samatas Premium, Bombay Sapphire, DineAmic Group, Curb, Gibsons Restaurant Group and CS Modern Luxury.

Cherries are officially in season! These flavor-filled, sweet little gems are packed with antioxidants, fiber, vitamins and minerals. They are low in calories, as well as a great source of iron, potassium, manganese, and copper, making them a wonderful snack option or way to curve a sweet tooth. Cherries even have a low glycemic load, making them a diabetic’s best fruit friend.
