You likely know that seasonal produce is often the least expensive produce. Additionally, eating seasonal local produce ensures you have the freshest selections, because they don’t have to travel thousands of miles from the farm to your table. So when you’re deciding how to fuel your Live Life Active goals, consider your options at the store and neighborhood farmers’ market.
You may also want to consider earning some activity PointsPlus Values (PPVs) by picking your own produce. Enjoy a day in the lovely springtime weather with family or friends at an area farm. Take your dinner right out of the ground and even have some for a picnic while you’re out!
No time for a road trip? Just read up on what’s in season while you’re pondering your meals for the week so you’re sure to get the maximum freshness and value from your shopping trip. Oh, and if you’re walking, biking, roller skating, skipping, sauntering, sidestepping, dancing, or jogging to the store or farmers’ market, be sure to pick up an extra piece of April’s bounty to keep some spring in your step all the way home!
