Summertime is the perfect time to snack on cool, refreshing treats, but some of the most common ones are the least healthy. Ice cream, soda pop, and milkshakes may be tasty, but they lack the nutrients that can keep you energized on the hottest and most humid summer days. If you’re looking for a snack that’s equal parts delicious and nutritious, check out these fruits and vegetables that you should be eating this summer.

Eggplant

Eggplant is known for having several health benefits. It’s high in fiber, low in calories, and loaded with antioxidants. These antioxidants fight chronic pain and lessen your risk of heart disease. Additionally, eggplant can regulate blood-sugar levels, and some research has found that eggplant is helpful in fighting cancer cells. It’s an incredibly versatile food that fits into any recipe from salads to stir-fry. If you’re iffy about the purple vegetable, try baking some filling eggplant parmesan for a rich, tasty meal!
