March is national nutrition month! One way to make sure you and your family are getting the nutrients from fruits and veggies is to shop seasonally! This also helps on cost because produce that is out of season costs more!

4 sweet potatoes 2 oz of low fat cream cheese 1 can of black beans 1 can of corn 1/4 cup pepper jack shredded cheese jalapeno slices crushed red chili pepper flakes and whatever other seasoning you want makes 4 servings...315 calories my new favorite dinner!
"The Eat Seasonably Calendar" helps you select fruits & veggies that are in season ♥ They usually taste better & are a better value... and are usually better for the environment too! ♥ (if you click on the picture it will take you to a cool interactive seasonal fruit & veggie wheel!)
Hopefully this will help keep fruit and veggies from going bad too early. Smart things here. I have practiced many of these most of my life. I will add Tomatoes. I do not refrigerate them ever. I have a hanging basket in the kitchen for my tomatoes and if I cut it I eat the entire tomato then and there. They act of chilling a whole or cut tomato sucks the flavor away immediately.
