Every quarter, a seasonal produce guide will be provided that includes common fruits and vegetables. Each one is colored to describe how it benefits the body. As the saying goes, “eating the rainbow” is vital to how your body functions. To maximize your highest level of energy and efficiency, it is crucial to have a colorful plate everyday.
Eating produce in season improves the flavor, increased nutrient density, and contains higher levels of antioxidants. A main perk of seasonal foods is they are going to be cheaper because of simple supply and demand. Seasonal products will grow in abundance, therefore they will be cheaper to purchase. I encourage you to purchase seasonal produce from your local farmer’s market to support locally grown produce. You really can’t beat a fresh tomato or apple! Scrumptious.
