Light, vegetable filled meals are the best in August, when there is such an abundance of local, fresh vegetables available. If you eat fish, it is a wonderful option for dinner, as it is a a great source of protein that is easier for the body to digest than heavy meats. Moroccan seasoning is bursting with flavour and great for summer nights.

We recommend making educated choices about the seafood that you consume. There are many resources out there that provide rating and information about the best types of fish to consume.
