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
Storing Olive Oil
According to our registered dietitian, you can keep an open bottle of olive oil for several months. Store it away from light and heat, in a tightly sealed container. If you store olive oil in the refrigerator it will turn cloudy, but this will not affect its flavor or quality. Substituting olive oil for other fats can be a heart healthy cooking strategy!
