Shopping in-season is the best way to ensure that you are eating the freshest produce you can (which also usually means the most delicious) and it’s a great way to cut down on your grocery bill. Whether you shop in supermarkets, health food stores or farmer’s markets, shopping from in-season produce is the way to go.

It’s almost May, which means spring is in full force. With warmer weather and hopefully with your allergies under control, why not spend some time outside going to local markets to shop what’s been blooming? Here are some delicious picks that are in-season during the month of May.

Pineapple

Perfect for warm weather, pineapple is a versatile fruit that can be added to a surprising number of meals. It’s great for digestion and it can actually reduce the risk of muscular degeneration. Try our delicious piña colada inspired grilled pineapple dessert for a yummy treat.

Spring Peas

Peas are very versatile and can be successfully hidden inside many dishes, even well enough for those that are very picky eaters. One of the best health benefits of peas is blood sugar control but other great perks are getting a good amount of iron, vitamin A, vitamin C and manganese.

Zucchini

My parents grow zucchini and every year, we have an embarrassing amount of zucchini overflowing our kitchen and our garden so it’s safe to say that we’ve gotten very creative with this delicious vegetable. Zucchini is known to aid weight loss, promote healthy digestion and lower blood pressure, among many other benefits.
