One of my favorite money saving tips for those wanting to eat healthier but stay within their budget is to purchase seasonal fruits and vegetables. Thankfully, summer offers a variety of beans, peas, peppers, greens, berries, melons, and so much more. With the excitement of fresh produce, it can be easy to forget the importance of food safety. We often attribute food-borne illness to meats, seafood, or mayonnaise-based dishes that have been sitting out of their safe temperature zones for long periods of time, but fruit and vegetables are quite capable of making us ill as well.
