Summer Fruits and Vegetables in Season - September 2019

When is your favourite fruit or vegetable in season?

By Nature and Wildlife Articles

There's nothing healthier than fresh fruits and vegetables. You can get these at your local supermarket, or from the proliferation of summertime roadside stands.

The high fiber content of fruits and vegetables is excellent for flushing toxic residues out of the body.Here are the dates for the more popular summer fruits and vegetables.

Try to buy produce that is as fresh as you can get it and buy organic fruit and veg where possible, as they obviously have fewer toxins. A good greengrocer will usually have much fresher fruits and vegetables than the large supermarket chains. The fresher the good, the higher the nutritional value. Fresh herbs are also full of healthful properties, so use them liberally. The ideal, of course, is to grow your own herbs and vegetables, but this is not possible for most of us.

Wellness Tip
Frosting Alternatives for Baking
Here's a tip from our registered dietitian: If you are eating frosted cakes, brownies, or cupcakes, skip the icing and try topping them with pureed fruit just before serving. Pureed pears or peaches are great options. Sprinkle with powdered sugar to complete the pretty picture. Alternatively, try pureed dried fruits with a bit of apple juice added. Figs or prunes work well.

Recipe
Apple Oat-Bran Muffins
Category: Breakfast
Description: Commercially baked muffins have become as large as small birthday cakes and loaded with calories and fat. These muffins, on the other hand, are delicious and loaded with fiber and heart-friendly oat bran. They may truly be the breakfast of champions. You may use Granny Smith or Gravenstein apples, but feel free to try your favorite green apple. You can freeze what you don't consume right away for a later date.
