If you’ve ever visited a farmers market you know that there are certain fruits and vegetables around specifically for seasons. There are reasons why certain fruits and vegetables are better for you during those seasons than others. These are their peak seasons. Also called Seasonal Eating!
Nowadays when you visit the supermarket, you’ll see fruits and vegetables all year round that do not match up to the season. This is because we now get fruits and vegetables from all corners of the earth shipped to one store. Think of this like GMO’s, it is always much healthier to eat what is local than what has been MADE AVAILABLE to you! This is called Seasonal Eating or eating by the season! Watch out once per season for our special seasonal eating picks to keep you and your family healthy and in SEASON!
