Meatless Mondays are a delicious endeavor right now, when there is an abundance of fresh fruits and veggies available at your local supermarket and Farmers Markets.

Breakfast:
Cantaloupe-Peach Smoothie

Fresh peaches and cantaloupe are abundant this mid-summer, but frozen fruits work equally well if you should crave a peach smoothie in December.

Lunch:
Buttery Fig and Blue Cheese Melt

Those with high cholesterol will want to limit overall cheese intake, but if you have earned a splurge, this tasty combination of figs and blue cheese is worth a taste.

Dinner:
Summer Chopped Salad With Arugula Vinaigrette 

Tinker with this recipe and add any of your favorite seasonal vegetables and even fruits. Chopping the ingredients in smaller pieces makes it easy to eat. Make the dressing a day ahead for added convenience.
