It is almost the end of the year and the stores are filled with healthy fresh fruits and vegetables. Eating produce in season is the easiest and least expensive way to support your health goals. Food is medicine! Eating more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes is the best way to gain vital nutrients and compounds, such as antioxidants, that will keep your body healthy.
Variety is extremely important to maintain good health. Eating a variety of foods not only provides essential nutrients but it prevents boredom and cooking burnout. I don't know about you, but I get tired of eating the same old recipes every week. Plus, it is fun discovering new foods to eat. It is an activity you can get the whole family involved in!
