Seasonal Produce Guide – February

A Seasonal Produce Guide for the month of February, organizing the fruits and vegetable choices by color to ensure you “Eat the Rainbow”. 

Wouldn’t it be cool if the “taste the rainbow” slogan was used for fruits and vegetables instead of colorful candy?

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve probably eaten my entire body weight in candy over the years (major sweet tooth). It’s such a damn good slogan. Similar to  “eat the rainbow” for fresh produce, but  with a better ring.

Whatever the slogan may be, the message is the still the same. Eating fruits and vegetables from an array of different colors is a great way to ensure you are getting key nutrients from food. Each color offers their own health benefits, so eating the rainbow gives you the whole combo.

We’ve been doing better in my family at eating more vegetables, but I wanted to take it one step further.

In our on-going effort to cut back our grocery bill while simultaneously eating a colorful array of fruits and vegetables, I’ve been relying on seasonal produce guides. Seasonal produce guides let you know which fruits and vegetables are in their peak season during the year.

In order to really kill two birds with one stone (all about time saving), I created a Seasonal Produce Guide for February organized by color. Simple right? Most guides are listed alphabetically. I find this an easier way to ensure you are eating a variety of colors.

 

Using fruits and vegetables when they are in season is an easy way to

  1. Ensure the best tasting produce
  2. Save money at the store
  3. Support local farms

 

This Seasonal Produce Guide for February is the first one I’m sharing with all of you! I hope you and enjoy and can’t wait to share some upcoming recipes featuring the produce in this guide.
