August is the time of the year when farmers start to shift their crops for fall. This means that it’s time to change your weekly pantry routine for the season. You’ll find that there are different foods available at farmers' markets that can effectively help you build a superfood-packed weekly meal prep. Vegetables like eggplants, beets, or exotic Asian long beans are what you can expect to find in the different farmers' markets throughout Texas.

Eggplant is generally what I try to get a hold of during this time of the year. This vegetable is packed with nutrients, fiber, and antioxidants that help the body in building healthy bones. Beets are also in-season during the start of fall which goes great with salads. Packed with nitrates, beets help the body maintain good blood pressure by widening the blood vessels. While the crunchy Asian long beans are an excellent vegetable to add to any diet because of the different B-vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium it offers.

Whatever you’re planning for your weekly meal prep in the kitchen this August, there’s bound to be enough variety with seasonal vegetables. This means that there are different options for vegetable recipes for both seasoned kitchen nerds and amateurs alike. So break out those market lists and see what best way to integrate seasonal vegetables in Texas for August.
