8 Summer Superfoods You Should Be Eating

Summer Squash

Unlike winter varieties, summer squash is low in carbs and calories — making it a terrific veggie to pile on your plate during the hot summer months. Zucchini and yellow squash are the most common types of summer squashes, and both are excellent sources of vitamin C, lutein, and zeaxanthin — antioxidants responsible for keeping eyesight sharp and immune systems strong. Throw them on the grill with some garlic and olive oil for an easy side dish or chop them into a pasta salad for added crunch. And if you’re looking for a clever low-calorie pasta swap, this Zucchini Linguine recipe is an absolute must-try!
