Vegetables are a vital part of our diet, providing essential nutrients and vitamins that our bodies need to function properly. In Texas, July is a great month to get fresh vegetables like tomatoes, corn, and squash.

Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C and lycopene, which is a powerful antioxidant. They can be eaten raw, cooked, or used in sauces and salads. Sweet corn is a popular summertime treat.

They can be eaten raw or cooked. Try them grilled, roasted, or in a soup or stir-fry.
