Seasons are changing and no matter where you live we all feel it in some way. Sunsets are earlier, mornings are darker, and nights are a bit chillier. The main thing thats changing, for me at least, is the changing of available produce. Watermelons are on their way out and root veggies are on their way in! A time for warmer spices, more downtime to cook, and that beautiful lull before the holiday season.

This is also the time of year to get sh*t done! Summertime is always so jam packed with activities and gettin’ bronzed, that we can all be a little honest about the fact that we maybe ate too much, drank too much, and skipped a work out or a meal prep here and there.

This is the PERFECT time of year to get into a routine that works for you, and most importantly… doesn’t bore you! The changing of produce is the best way to spice up (literally) your meal prep routine, and to try some things you maybe never had before!

I wanted to give you a list of whats in season for the next two months, so you can confidently head to the store and prep your meals. Theres a bunch of benefits of buying in season. Our bodies naturally need these vitamins and minerals as the seasons change. In season produce is also much cheaper than things out of season because they travel less to get to the store shelves and were JUST picked.
