Seasonal produce

Eating produce that is in season where you live offers a multitude of benefits. Not only will you be eating "green" by reducing the amount of travel that your food requires to get to your table, but your health will benefit as well. Produce that is grown near where it is sold is fresher, healthier (fewer nutrients are lost because it hasn't traveled for days to get to you), and tastes better. 

Here are a few resources to help you find fresh produce near you:
  • Local Harvest will help you to locate farmers' markets and family farms near you
  • What's in season? This list (also available on the Mama Bootcamp Printable Resources page) will help you build your shopping list!
  • Placer Grown- if you live near Placer County, California, this website is incredibly helpful!
