The best thing I've found is fresh fruit frozen for later use in my morning yogurt. I take advantage of whatever is in season, and freeze most of it as I can't eat it quickly enough. This also enables me to try fruits I may not like, because I like almost anything as long as it is in combination with other fruits. Just defrost slightly and blend with plain low or no fat yougurt and away you go YUM and with no added sugar :)

Buying fresh fruits and vegetables from our local market saves me $10-$20 each week. I find better deals and better tasting produce which lasts longer in the refrigerator.

The best way for me to find out what's in season is to go by what's on sale. If you watch the prices of certain items over the course of a year, you will notice that strawberries are at their cheapest right now and so is asparagus but during the summer months they are a lot pricier and not as readily available.
Also can be less costly - a big deal with current prices in the supermarket!

TY Liz, I love fresh Produce and Fruit. It is great to know what is in season and a great reminder for all to utilize their local Farmers' Market. Also learned a few new ways to enjoy healthy foods. nancylee46
