Do you ever struggle to find fresh fruits and veggies in the colder months?

Fortunately, the freshest fruits and vegetables are available year round thanks to Fresh from Florida. At home, we strive to consume seasonal items that are locally sourced. Since Florida is just across the border, we are well stocked with produce that is fresh, tasty and from Florida. Actually, if you look at the stickers on your produce, you may notice that a lot of fruit, veggie and seafood options are from Florida; even if you’re located across the county!

Look at how colorful and bright these fresh Florida citrus look! It seriously brightens a cold and wet day like today. Since Florida farmers aim to have fresh produce all year round, these juicy citrus’s were easy to snag at my local grocery store.

This awesome infographic will tell you what is seasonally available! I have a printout on my refrigerator that will help me meal plan for the week. Broccoli, squash, corn, tomatoes, and mushrooms are the vegetables on my grocery list for next week since they’re seasonally available in March. My favorite fruits for this month include grapefruit, papaya, oranges and STRAWBERRIES! (my favorite!)

Did you know that guava and mushrooms are available year round. Who says you can’t have tropical fruit in the wintertime! I think a guava smoothie is added to my cooking list for next week.
