Summer has arrived and with-it come greener pastures, long hot days, al fresco dining, sizzling barbecues with friends, spontaneous picnics, enjoying the fruits and vegetables of the season and supporting local businesses. We’re tucking into summer with a few fresh favourites.

This summer we are enjoying ice cream sandwiches from Abbey’s Creations, fermented ketchup from Culture Shocked, the LOVED. collection created by Ryan Massel, and mustards from Cian’s Mustards.

Hamilton Beach Whole Fruit Juice Extractor

When summer produce is at its freshest, we make room on our kitchen counter for the Hamilton Beach Whole Fruit Juice Extractor.

In just nine seconds, you can transform whole fruits and vegetables into a nutritious anytime snack. The extra-large, three-inch chute on the juicer fits whole fruits and vegetables so less time is spent chopping. The 700-watt dual-speed motor is large and in charge, extracting juice from hard and soft produce. The BPA-free pitcher is dishwasher safe making clean up easy. One of our favourite daily pick-me-ups is fresh ginger and lemon juice mixed with a dash of cayenne and turmeric. Or we like to start our day with a glass of juice made with two carrots, half a large apple, a dash of turmeric and a quarter-inch slice of fresh ginger. When combined with a balanced diet, juicing comes with remarkable health benefits plus it’s an easy way to get more servings of fruits and veggies.
