What is in Season During June

  • Avocados
  • Beets
  • Blueberries
  • Cherries

  • Greens (arugula, lettuce, spinach, Swiss chard, kale)
  • Leeks
  • Mango
  • Peas

During June, consider how you can focus on your health over the summer. Perhaps you can start a garden, plan a vacation, go for a hike or spend time with family and friends. Try learning a new hobby, practicing yoga or meditation, or dusting off your old bike. Find something that will keep you active: mentally, physically, socially. And when you head to the grocery store or farmer’s market, keep this June meal plan in your back pocket as a reminder of what’s in season and how you can support overall health.
