- August 2009 > Healthy Tips
Feed your family with less without sacrificing taste, freshness, quality, or nutrition using our money-saving tips. Out-of-season produce is costly and lacks flavor. Skip it; instead choose fruits and vegetables that are in season. When produce is at its peak, there’s an abundance of it―and you can find it for a bargain. In the summer, enjoy tomatoes, cucumbers, fresh herbs, bell peppers, and more. During fall and winter, look to winter squashes; dark, leafy greens; citrus; and sweet potatoes. And in spring, try berries, asparagus, artichokes, and fresh peas.
For a delicious and also highly nutritious summer dish, try the following recipe.
