detail-of-american-flag-11279635008nzaN.jpg

First, let's think of the real reason we are here! Before the BBQ's, summer drinks, pool or lake time...We're here to remember those who have served our great country and those who have fallen in duty. We are forever grateful. God Bless America!

Of course, part of Memorial Day Weekend is the grilling! What are you planning to throw on the grill this weekend? We'd love to hear!

This week we are also celebrating National Asparagus Day (Thursday May 24) - so why not join in? Throw a few stalks on the grill with your other veggies!

However you celebrate, be safe and don't forget to take some time to reflect on all of those who have lost their lives for our great country. 

*Watsonville Coast Produce Will be closed on Monday, May 28 in observance of Memorial Day. We will return to our normal deliveries on Tuesday, May 29. Any questions, call 1-800-966-8547

Fresh Veggies to combat diabetes and celebrate World Health Day!

I'd venture to say that as a produce company, we will never tire of preaching all of the benefits of fresh produce for a healthy life. 
April is "defeat diabetes" month and World Health Day falls on April 7. We feel there is no better time to talk about fresh produce and how the importance fruit and veggies play on a healthy lifestyle.
How do you incorporate fresh produce into your diet? It can be tricky especially if you're on the go and in a hurry. Most adults don't get the recommended amount of fresh produce, thus increasing their risk for health problems.
We found this article and the best food to eat to combat diabetes. No surprise that the majority of the list is fresh produce. 
Be well, friends!

A devilishly good Easter snack!

It's almost Easter and you know what that means! Deviled Eggs! They go together like Santa and Christmas, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Mustard and Ketchup...well, you get it.
Since we're a produce company, we figured we could put a veggie and not to mention {devilishly} tasty spin on it! 
Try these amazing Avocado Deviled Eggs from Averie Cooks!

We dare to say you'll never go back to ordinary deviled eggs again! 
Happy Easter to all!
