Seasonal Vegetables & Fruit: August (South Africa)

August 6, 2017

August – my husband’s favourite time of the year (i.e. Birthday Month) but it is also our wedding anniversary so I guess now it’s certainly one of my favourite month’s too.  Veg and fruit wise – here is what to expect in our stores that should be local, more affordable and definitely highest in nutrients (ideally food that hasn’t travelled far to get to the shops!).

Vegetables: Asparagus, radishes, cabbage, cucumber, turnip, leeks, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, parsnips, carrots, peas, spring onion and beetroot.

Starchy Veg: Sweet potatoes, butternut and pumpkin.

Fruits: Guava, bananas, lemons, pineapples, kiwi, granadillas (one of our favourites – hence the featured image) and avocado.


I will definitely be stocking up on my sugar free homemade granola using all the bananas we are finding in store right now 🙂  Happy shopping!
