If you’re looking to cut your footprint even more, you can skip the store entirely and try growing your own fruits and vegetables! A great way to start is with our Microgreen Starter Kit which lets you grow microgreens from the comfort of your own home and still provides you with the necessary nutrients and health benefits that you can get from full grown produce. Since you are growing it yourself you can also guarantee that it is as fresh as possible!
Our Green Onion Kit can also help expand the use of your Green Onions so that they are always available to you when you need them. We have a Garlic Greens Kit as well for growing garlic scapes that can be placed on pretty much any dish! So yummy!
Not sure how to incorporate produce into your meals? Check out our Recipe page for some ideas!
Lastly, and maybe most importantly, is educating ourselves on safe food handling! Being able to safely handle, prepare, eat and store your produce is just as important as remembering to incorporate them into your diet.WIC Works has many food safety resources for sharing with and educating participants, including ProducePro resources!
Let’s build our knowledge together in hopes of creating healthier eating habits.
Happy National Fruit and Veggie Month from our team at Hamama!
