The Berger Bungalow: My journey to finding fresh food during the winter

My journey to finding fresh food during the winter

Filling your plate with colorful food is usually an easy way to eat healthier. Unfortunately, a lot of people have the mindset that eating colorful food in the winter is hard, or even impossible, but I will let you in on a little secret - it is a lot easier than you think! 

Before my parents moved to Florida about two years ago, I would grocery shop and choose just any brand of food that I could find - I didn’t really know that I had a choice to pick great options vs. okay (or not-so-good) options. In the colder months, I would usually get home, try the produce and proceed to throw it out because it just wasn’t that fresh. 

When they finally moved, I went to their local farmers market and grocery store and noticed a huge difference. Most of the produce in Florida stores was from Florida farmers who make it easy for us to eat fresh year-round. This is where I was first introduced to Fresh From Florida food and it has made a huge difference in the food that I bring home and put on our table today.

Now, when I go grocery shopping, I search out Fresh From Florida food products. Just the other day, I lucked out and found these amazing tomatoes and strawberries (my favorite winter find - they are always so juicy!). I also found peppers, blueberries and so many other amazing produce at the farmers market! When you grocery shop, you can find fresh food, too - just make sure you are looking for the Fresh From Florida label on your food!

Living in the south has a lot of perks like avoiding most of the frigid air and snow storms, but the best perk of all is finding fresh and colorful produce! Don’t forget to shop for Fresh From Florida products and you can also follow the Fresh on social media to see their Fresh! recipe videos.
