This is the season to stretch your dietary wings . . . when you buy produce and/or anything else from a farmer's market or stand, ask for cooking tricks and recipes . . . these folks are usually expert at preparing the foods they mrket and you may just find a new favorite recipe.
Farmer's Markets are wonderful places to ask "What's that?" and "How do you prepare that?" and "What goes with that?"

Farmer's market or grocery store. It is less expensive if you go to the farmer's market and buy bulk but when you can't get to a farmer's market, wash your fruit and vegetable with a vegetable wash to get the same effect as foods without pesticides.
Take time to look at new veggies and fruits in the market. Give yourself some of your budget to try new foods. There are many great foods that are good for you! I recently found Chinese spinach which is red to try.
I like trying new foods and have found several at our local Asion market. The farmer's market also offers a good source of great new foods.
