Fruits and Vegetables, By the Month

I was always told to eat healthy while I was pregnant, thats a given though-Right? I also was told to choose fruits and vegetables that are in season to save money. The problem was, I never knew what’s “in season”. All I knew was that we did apple picking in the fall; and picked a pumpkin right before Halloween.

I started to do some research to figure out when to buy fruits and vegetables to save money. I thought this would be great to share with you.
