Yes. I like eating seasonal foods. During the summer, I eat more salads (raw veggies) because fresh veggies are abundant and reasonably priced. When autumn hits, you may see me making pumpkin or potato soup. During the winter, I do eat more soups, stews and cooked veggies.

Oh, definitely! I've been almost fruitarian lately, what with 98 cent strawberries and 67 cent peaches. In a week or two the melon prices will drop.
I've also switched from oatmeal to cold cereal or to fruit and yogurt. (I got a TON of cereal on sale and with coupons-- Kashi and Fiber One for less than a dollar a box.)
I'm eating some rather wintery things too, though, because I'm harvesting the last of the beets and turnips and I got a really good deal on potatoes (10 pounds for $2.) Tonight I'll be making a beet green and rice gratin and tomorrow or the next day it'll be red flannel hash-- diced potatoes and beets sauteed together. Still not sure what to do with the turnips; I think I'll do mashed potatoes and turnips and freeze some of that.
About the time I use up the root veggies, I should start getting tomatoes and peppers, so that's going to mean lots of pasta dishes and salsa.
I try to eat locally and in-season, so this time of year we eat a lot of corn on the cob, asparagus, etc.
~Alicia “When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” -John Lennon
