June is National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month.  Now is a great time to save produce that is in season in June!The best time to buy fresh fruits and vegetables is when they are in season! This is when they will be at their lowest prices of the year. Shop smart and you can save some money and serve your family fresh and healthy foods. June also is National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month. That’s one more reason to try some in season produce this month!

There are so many great places to buy fresh fruits and vegetables. Right now, the weather is warm, so there could be a farmers’ market going on near you. If you have never purchased, and eaten, produce straight from the farmer before, I highly recommend you do it. It doesn’t get fresher than that!

June Fruits
Apricots – According to WebMD, one apricot has only 17 calories.
Blueberries – Tasty and filled with antioxidants
Cantaloupe – Sweet, light, refreshing, and filled with vitamins
Cherries – The perfect topping for an ice cream sunday
Kiwi – Fuzzy little fruits with a unique flavor
Mangoes – Try some in a fruit based salsa over salmon or in fish tacos
Nectarines – Almost like peaches, but without the fuzz.
Peaches – A peach pie makes a lovely dessert on a warm day.
Strawberries – Fresh strawberries taste amazing!
Watermelon – Nothing says “It’s Summertime!” quite like chilled watermelon.

June Vegetables
Beets – You either love them or you hate them.
Corn – The perfect food for grilling! They make an awesome side dish for a burger.
Green Beans – You don’t have to wait until November to make a green bean casserole.
Lettuce – The basis of a salad, or the topping on a burger
Peas – Are good in so many recipes!
Swiss Chard – A nutritious addition to a smoothie
Zucchini – Try some in a stir fry
Yellow Squash – This is one of my new favorites (especially the baby ones)!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
