Savor the Summer!

Here in Portland, Maine, our summers go fast so we have to really savor each day. All August, I’ve been telling myself that there’s still lots of summer left. I’m doing lots of summer stuff like going to outdoor concerts, going camping, and generally being outside as much as I can. And I’m eating a lot of summery foods—like fruit salad! If you’re looking for something delicious and nutritious to eat this weekend, try one of these awesome fruit salads.
