What’s In Season This Fall
It is so important to eat with the seasons, after all that’s the way that nature intended it. Plus, produce will be fresh and at it’s best if you eat them when they’re supposed to be eaten. Nowadays so many foods are available to us year round, meaning produce from all over the globe.
Eating seasonally allows you to have a variety of vegetables and fruit while fueling your body. You can prevent colds and seasonal flus by eating with the changing seasons and locally because they contain the vitamins and nutrients that you need that time of year.
Another thing I like about paying attention to the produce you eat and having a list like this is, you learn and get ideas about other fruits and vegetables that you either didn’t know about before or never really think of. For example, I never really knew about kohlrabi or sunchokes before. You might think there are not that many options to eat at any given time, but looking at this list there is an array of foods that you can cook with and eat raw.
Eating this way has allowed me to try new foods and not get bored with eating the same fruits and vegetables over and over. Visit a local farmers market or organic supermarket to find the best selction of seasonal produce. Or if you’re feeling really motivated, grow your own!
