Eating Seasonally

September 29, 2015

Seasonal eating is a great way to maximize the nutrient count in your diet. Eating seasonally means that your produce doesn’t travel thousands of miles to get to your grocery store. Fruits and vegetables can lose a lot of their nutrient content in the journey. As an added bonus, seasonal produce is usually a less expensive way to enjoy fresh foods. A shorter distance equals less gas and transportation costs and ultimately, a lower priced produce department.

We are officially in fall, and it is a great time of the year to eat seasonally. The stores will be stocked with apples, plums, squash, carrots, potatoes, cabbage and many other seasonal favorites.

Here are some dishes featuring seasonal items to get you started enjoying the seasons bounty.
