Eating seasonally is amazing because it allows you to enjoy the freshest fruits and vegetables at the peak of the season. Summer is right around the corner, and there are so many wonderfully ripe summer fruits and vegetables to enjoy. These include arugula, beets, broccoli, cherries, mushrooms, radishes, rhubarb, sprouts, spinach, and strawberries.

However, summer doesn’t officially start until June 20th, so how do you eat seasonally when it seems you’re between seasons? No worries, this meal guide has fruits and vegetables that are in season right now, so you can eat seasonally before the peak summer season begins!
