Eating all the Fresh From Florida Produce While Staying Healthy!
This post was sponsored by Fresh From Florida as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central, however, all opinions expressed are my own.
We moved to Florida a little over a year ago and I have been obsessed with living a healthier lifestyle now that we are no longer cooped up in the house for more than half the year. Plus, there is something about the warm weather, sunshine, and beautiful beaches that just puts a pep in my step to get out, keep us moving, and eating Fresh from Florida.
There are 3 main areas of my life that I have focused on to stay healthy. Which are eating right which means lots of fresh fruits and veggies, getting my sleep in and for night owl who has 3 kids that have been the hardest goal to conquer, and staying active. While it has definitely been hard to get a good 8 hours of sleep in, staying active and eating healthy seems to come easy in Florida.
I stay active because it’s not all about hitting the gym or popping in a workout video, here I am able to go for a long bike ride, rollerblade along the beach, or paddleboard in the Gulf of Mexico year round. This was just a dream when we lived up north! Plus, my eating habits improved as soon as we moved down without any effort. I love fresh fruit and vegetables, I could eat them all day every day and thanks to Florida farmers I can. The fruit is juicy and sweet, and for someone with an uncontrollable sweet tooth, this has been life-changing.
Fresh From Florida Fruits and Vegetables
While this has been an unusually cold winter for Florida, I even had frost on my car one morning, it is still warm enough throughout the state for Florida farmers to make it easy for everyone to eat fresh produce year around.
Whenever I head to Publix, I am always keeping an eye out for the Fresh from Florida signs, to see what is in season and there is always an array of yumminess!
In Season Right Now:
And so Much More! Curious when each fruit and vegetable is in season? Find out here.
This is another reason to love spring, both bell peppers and strawberries are my favorite produce. Most of the time I don’t even cook the bell peppers because they taste so sweet, we just stock up on some yummy dips. Strawberries don’t last more than a couple hours in my house because they are loved by everyone!
Plus, snap beans are eaten in my house as a snack, I love to have a bowl of something to munch on as I write, and snap beans have a lot fewer calories than chips.
With so many of my family’s favorite produce being in season this spring, my family is eating healthy while staying active thanks to Florida’s amazing weather.

I love this idea I totally want to reach through the screen and try one of those strawberries, they look delicious, so juicy!
Yum! I went to the organic market the other day and the strawberries where to die for! I am eating them as I read this (so I am not that jealous 🙂 )
I would love to move to Florida and certainly need to eat more fruit and veg – you think my husband would let me come? well done on keeping healthy with a family – it’s not easy to do it all. I am not very good at getting enough sleep at night as there’s always something that seems to need doing.
I really wish I could get fresh food that close to home, but it is so neat to see what all you can get fresh in Florida. All those fruits look delicious.
Lots of yummy produce in season. Living here in the desert of Albuquerque, we dont get much fresh produce other than apples, peaches, peppers, and maybe tomatoes if it is a good year.
Eating clean is a key. I also always pay attention to eat seasonal fruit and veggies.
I try to eat as many fresh veggies and fruit as I can. being in California they are probably not Florida fresh but anything fresh you gotta love.
I love choosing seasonal produce that is grown locally. I always look for the “From Local Farm” sign at my grocery store.
Those bell peppers are my favorites plus tomatoes I love to munch them fresh 🙂
Good for our health and tummy!
I love fresh fruit and vegetables too. And good to change your ways to increase how you love and look at your own self. Beautiful!
I love the idea of eating fresh fruits and produce. I am really working hard to do this more in my own diet.
