June Produce

OOOHH I absolutely LOVE summer produce! Peaches, berries, baby spinach, baby tender greens, artichokes, just all the sweetness! Have you ever tried grilled peaches with some homemade vanilla bean ice cream? YUM! Berries and angel food cake with frozen whipped topping? SO IN! What are you most excited to tempt your taste buds with this season?

October Produce

Eating seasonally provides our bodies with exactly what it needs at the right time of year. In fall, we start to get away from the juicy water based produce, and into the fleshy, starchy produce. More carbohydrates, denser flesh to allow our bodies to increase energy stores for the cold winter months. Less zucchini and more butternut squash. Less peaches, more pears. Did you know the rind on acorn squash is edible? Totally is.

If you are training, this is a great time of year to add endurance drills to your training – conditioning your body to use energy stores effectively on long slow runs.
