4 reasons to eat with the seasons


1. It’s cheaper

Fruit and vegetable produce is generally cheaper when it is most abundant and sold in bulk, (ie. direct from the farmer or local markets). This is because of the age-old business principle: supply is greater than demand.


To take advantage, do your research.

  1. Find out what fruits and vegetables are in season now and focus on buying those
  2. Find some cool recipes to match those in-season foods.


It’s good to save money on your food bill and that’s the first reason to eat with the seasons.


2. It’s healthier

Seasonal foods picked at the peak of freshness offer better taste and higher nutritional value than out of season fruits and vegetables. This is because are they harvested when they are supposed to be – naturally. They will be tastier and fresher and, you can provide your body with a variety of important vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, and phytochemicals (like vitamins but often better) that you need to maintain optimal health.

So, they taste better and give you better nutritional value – that’s another great reason to eat with the seasons.
