From trendy veg to the “what in the world is that” fruit, the Weekly Bite is your go-to location for what seasonal fruits and vegetables, grains, herbs and spices should be landing on your plate.

It’s easy to be healthy and go off the beaten aisle with the Weekly Bite!
Cooking and nutrition go hand and hand. That’s why the Weekly Bite will always shares the flavor of a food as well as the nutritional profile and health benefits of the highlighted fare so you can taste more, expand your food horizons AND eat healthier. All Weekly Bites are complete with healthy recipes to get your mouth watering. Likely your local grocery store has a small space for these unique eats, but if not think of this as your little nudge to encourage you to stop by your nearest Farmer’s Market for the freshest seasonal food.
Who says strange looking foods like fiddlehead ferns or not-so-pleasant sounding eats like the ugli fruit should get the cooking ax? The Weekly Bite reminds you to never judge a food without a bite, lick or taste involved and to always give those scorned “I know I hate that” food choices a second chance. Brussels sprout haters…I’m talking to you! No more humdrum meals at your house when you now have the food knowledge and inspiration you need to create a new healthy recipe with in-season food.
