Fall is officially here, and we are starting to see a shift in many things as it approaches. Weather, scenery, clothing, and foods are all shifting for the season change. While I personally do not care for the cold weather, I look forward to wearing oversized sweatshirts & leggings, drinking hot chocolate, and eating chili. 🙂

While the seasons are shifting, now is the time for us to shift in our food purchases too. The main food purchases that should shift are fresh produce. Fruits and vegetables that are in season tend to be plentiful by local farmers, so there is no need for the local grocers to increase cost to bring them in, thus keeping cost down for the business and consumer. By eating fruits and vegetables that are in season, one can keep eating healthy choices, without an increasing cost. This is always my main tip to those who say “eating healthy is expensive.”

Below I have the list of FALL Fruits & Veggies that will allow you to be a healthy consumer. Throughout the next few weeks on Instagram and Facebook, I will share benefits of some of these fruits and veggies, so make sure you follow me on IG & Facebook.
