May Produce Guide

May Produce Guide

Gone are the days of winter citrus and other chilly-season produce, and on to the days of fresh greens and tropical fruits. The freshest produce in May may seem like a strange combination, but it’s the best time to blend the sweet and tart flavors of more tropical fruits with home-style items like snap peas and squash. Try your hand at combining these fresh-as-can-be produce items in your weekday meals.



True-to-fruit-form, dried, or juiced, pineapples are a great source for magnesium and potassium. According to a variety of research, pineapple contributes to fantastic hair and increased energy.



Mangoes are a great fruit to add to nearly any fish-based dish. The acidity brings out the buttery goodness inside. Mangoes also decrease obesity and heart disease. It’s a #winwin. Check out our mango sticky rice recipe.

Snap Pea

Snap Peas

Snap peas are an excellent source of fiber, not to mention they are free of gluten, cholesterol and fat. Add these delicious peas to a stir fry or salad for all of these added benefits.


Summer Squash

Full of magnesium and fiber, summer squash is a great addition to any meal. Whether it is simply steamed and salted or baked with cheese, it’s the perfect addition to any summer meal.
