Have You Visited Your Local Farmer’s Market?

Spring is a great time to enjoy seasonal vegtables and fruits. After a long winter of heavier foods, the light and crisp fruits and vegtables of springs are just what our bodies need.

Try visiting your local community farmer’s market or a “self-pick” farm to enjoy the freshest fruits and vegtables. Stores have to wait for their produce shipments to arrive, which means that the produce they receive may be picked before it is ripe or may be picked before it is ripe or may become overripe during the journey from stem to store. Fresh produce has a higher nutrient content than frozen or canned food, and it tastes better too.  Choose fruits and vegtables that have a vibrant color and are free from bruises.

Here are some fruits and vegtables that ripen in the spring and provide you with health benefits:
