With farmers markets in full-swing and the summer bounty on the horizon this is a great time of year to embrace a more plant-centric plate!

So what would your last meal on earth consist of? Would it be large quantities of the foods you often tell yourself you "shouldn't" have? Or a delicious meal that truly satisfies you? As for me, I'm off to have my heavenly, moderate last meal... of the day. I hope you will join me.
