But, certain types of produce, like artichokes, kale and leaks can be harder than others to prepare.
Chef Tastemaker Hillary Mickell from Foodily.com came to the studio to show you how to prepare those foods and make them taste good. Buying in season produce is key to staying healthy while spending less.
"It's always going to be healthier if you get it direct from the farmers market and one of the things I love is taking your kids there, it teaches them where food comes from and they develop an appreciation for good food," Mickell said. "You are able to search for millions of recipes across the web all at once, you can organize them into collections and then you can share those collections with your friends on Facebook."
