Seasonal Produce: August
Oh man the summer is flying by. I cant believe its August already. School is about to be back in session, people are wrapping up their summer vacations and before you know it we'll be pulling out our holiday recipes and drinking hot coffee again instead of iced.
But for now we can savor the last bit of summer by getting in those delicious summer fruits and vegetables. The following is a list of some of the flavors of August. Buying fruit in season gets you the most affordable and tastiest of what our planet has to offer. So take advantage and eat lots of fruits and vegetables. After all they are healthy for you.
- Cactus pears
- Green beans
- Shelling beans
- Summer squash
There are many more fruits a vegetables you can get year round, but these listed are the best tasting in August and in the summer months. Go support your local farmers market, go visit a local farm, or an urban farm to find the best in season goods.
Have a happy, healthy and delicious week!
