Creating a Meal Plan: Seasonal Meals

There’s been a lot of talk about seasonal meals lately, and with good reason.  Now that we’re in late spring, a lot of fruits and vegetables are starting to come into season.  That means they’re cheap at the store because they’re abundant.  If you’re looking to really save money on your food, using these seasonal ingredients is a huge way to do it.

A good way to rotate your meal planning is to use seasonal ingredients, too.  That way you’re not cooking and serving the same meals all the time, year around.  It keeps meals fresh and cheap!  Plus, there’s just something about eating light, fresh foods in the summer and comforting, thick stews full of root vegetables in the winter.
