4 ways to prep your produce

4 ways to prep your produce

Shore to city, San Diego neighborhoods pride themselves on healthy, eclectic and popular farmers markets. There, you can stock up on produce staples, or dare to try something new — sourced locally for the freshest fare.

With summer upon us, we asked four dietitians to share their seasonal favorites. More importantly, we asked how to prep them for a tasty, wholesome meal.

3 easy ways to eat a mango

Nothing says summer like a sweet, tropical mango. Just one cup of chopped mango provides 100 percent of your daily dose of vitamin C. From salsa and skewers to smoothies and salads, this versatile fruit goes a long way.

3 easy ways to eat an artichoke

Farmers market listicle artichoke
Artichokes are one of the oldest known foods, dating back to ancient Greece. They’re also delicious and nutritious — and a little bit intimidating. Go beyond the spiky petals with these tips from our Sharp dietitian.

3 easy ways to eat snow peas

These delicate pea pods are meant to be eaten before they are ripe. They also deliver 60 percent of your recommended daily vitamin C. A staple of many Asian dishes, snow peas are a great addition to salads, stir-fries and grilled skewers.

3 easy ways to eat eggplant

This mighty, meaty fruit (yes, it’s a fruit, of the nightshade variety) is bursting with health benefits. Perfect for summer outdoor grilling as a meatless alternative, eggplant is also easy to include in side dishes and appetizers. Eggplant thrives in warm weather, which makes it a great crop for the San Diego region.
