Its getting warmer and the days are getting longer, which means spring fruits and veggies are here! An easy way to get all the nutrition and flavor of your favorite foods at a lower cost is to find fruits and veggies that are in IN SEASON. In season means that they are growing at their natural time of the year, rather than being grown in a greenhouse, or shipped around the world, so you get fresh food grown nearby.
Strawberries are a bright, nutrient-packed spring fruit that are yummy on their own and can be added to all sorts of foods. Captain Create’s friend Candi, over at Create Better Health, has lots of ideas for strawberries, or you can try this easy smoothie recipe below.
