Do you struggle with consuming fresh produce in the winter? In Oklahoma, we have a wide variety of produce through warmer months, and fortunately, we also have a wide variety of produce that is in season this time of year! At Banister Nutrition, we post a list of produce in season for Oklahoma at the beginning of every month. When produce is in season, it tastes its best and it can usually be purchased at a lower cost. Check out our social media sites to view these each month.
Here are some ways you can utilize our fresh produce list:
- You can keep it simple and just pick up these items to eat raw. Some examples are carrots, broccoli, or pears as side options with a meal or consumed as a snack.
- You can add them to meals you are already preparing by swapping the out-of-season veggie for the in-season veggies in the list.
- Try some new recipes. Here are some of my favorite ways to include produce in season from our February list:
