Hello! Summer is officially here with it’s hot weather, delicious fruits and outdoor activities. I’m soaking them all in. I just returned from a long weekend with my family in a state park where we ate lots of Basil Lime Fruit Salad, went paddle boarding and boating, and stocked up on the SPF. This week’s roundup is a collection of summer stuff & the latest vegan news.
