The Made in America music festival takes over the Parkway again this weekend. Mentioning the arrival of a music festival is kind of like saying, “It’s supposed to snow this weekend:” For some, the news inspires a flurry of squeals and jumping for joy, and for others, it inspires the urge to lock themselves in the safety of their homes until it’s over. But regardless of how you feel about music festivals, I’m betting you’ll enjoy this music-festival inspired playlist.

This week, we’ve loaded the workout playlist with artists that will be playing at Made in America, like Kanye West, Grimes, Pharrell and more. Plus, for your listening pleasure, we’ve sprinkled in some songs that just scream “America”—think Bruce Springsteen, Lenny Krativz and the Beach Boys. So whether you’re braving the Parkway to get your sweat on along Kelly Drive this weekend or just dancing in your crowd-free living room, these beats will keep you moving.

what to eat
Earlier this week, I was informed by the folks over on the Free People blog that some of my very favorite summer vegetables are, in fact, fruits: zucchini, eggplant, peppers, corn—they’re all fruits, you guys! Who knew? Like tomatoes and avocados, they all have seeds, and seeds mean fruit, says science.

But it doesn’t really matter whether they are fruits or vegetables—what matters is that they are freakin’ delicious. And, lucky for us, they’re also in season. So for this week’s recipes, we’ve brought you five dishes loaded with some of our favorite farmers’ market fruits that you, if you are anything like us, probably thought were vegetables up until now. Enjoy!
