With the end of August nearly upon us, the start of fall isn’t far behind. While few of us want to hunker down on something so heavy as a huge bowl of pasta or a massive steak in the dead of summer (unless you like feeling like you’re about to die), it won’t be long before cooler temperatures once again make their move and we're cozying up next to steaming hot plates of decadent comfort food.

It's not that we aren't looking forward to wolfing down heaping helpings of all things warm, bubbly, fried, and delicious, but why not lighten up your diet while you still can? Get the most out of the rest of the warm weather season (and the bounty of fresh ingredients that come with it) with these refreshingly light recipes perfect for the end of summer.
