Summer is my favourite time of the year for all the delicious, local, fresh produce available in our grocery stores. I wait all year for the delicious stone fruits to be available, and indulge in apricots, plums, nectarine, and cherries all summer long!
Take a look at some of the fruits and vegetables that are in season this August. Buying local produce is the best way to get the most nutrient dense options. The conventional imported produce that is usually found in our stores is depleted in nutrients, it is picked too early and ripens on the trip over.
Eating a diet with a variety of fruits and vegetables is an important step towards any health journey. Fresh produce is packed with antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that help to support your bodies vitality and homeostasis.
