Summer is a great time to transition to healthier eating by taking advantage of in-season fruits and vegetables. In Hawaii, we’re blessed with an easy growing environment that produces luscious fruits and colorful vegetables in abundance. Take the time to seek out local produce this summer – besides being fresher and juicier than imported food, local in-season produce is more affordable because higher yields drive prices down. As a bonus, you’ll also be helping support local farmers and our economy as a whole!
