‘Tis the Season



As Summer continues you may be noticing more and more delicious produce becoming available (and going on sale!) in your local grocery store. Also, during this time of year you may see more farmers markets opening up, which sell fresh, local produce. Take advantage of this!! Eating local, in season produce is not only delicious, but it is also healthful due to the reduced travel time of the food, making it more likely to have its full potential of vitamins and minerals. Another plus- the food tastes better! Listed below are some healthful foods that will be coming into season during the summer months. Try to incorporate these and other fresh produce into your diet regularly to maintain a healthFUL life.
