Summer Fruit and Veggie Challenge

What better time to try some new fruits and vegetables? Fruits and vegetables pack a ton of nutrients, antioxidants, fiber and water, making them a much needed food group to every meal. Trying new foods can be intimidating but you never know if you like something until you try it. Below is a list of fruits and vegetables, how many have you tried? Try them more than once, and try them more than one way (canned, fresh, frozen, dried). Happy Summer!
