Keep these tips in mind when using and shopping for seasonal produce:
- Fresh foods are often less expensive during their harvest season. You may even save money by buying in bulk.
- Shop at your local farmers market to learn more about produce and get ideas on how to prepare foods in season.
- Gardening gives you fresh seasonal produce and a little exercise, too. The sense of pride you’ll feel will make that produce taste even better!
- Frozen, canned and dried fruits and vegetables also can be healthy choices. Compare food labels and choose items with the lowest amounts of sodium, added sugars and saturated fat.
- Freeze fresh produce so you can add it to smoothies, soups, breads and more throughout the year.
