Make the most out of the season's nutrient-packed produce by visiting your local farmer’s market, recommends Helen Troncoso, DPT, a women’s health advocate and Ms. New York America 2012. Not only will you be supporting local farmers, but since the fruits and vegetables available are traveling within a short distance, they'll be less damaged and at the peak of their flavor and nutritional content, Troncoso says.
“You get extra bonus points for also helping out the environment and your wallet—less travel time means fewer fossil fuels released into the environment, and organic produce from your local farmer's market is often up to 40 percent cheaper than your local supermarket.”
