Celebrate Eating Foods In Season - Most Flavor, Nutrition & Affordable

This Sparked Me!

I recently read about a family that makes it a point to eat foods in season. I try to do this too!

Every week celebrate a food that is in season because that is when you get the most flavor and nutritional value and when it is the most affordable.

For the greatest freshness look for foods that are locally grown and are in season.

    This is also a great way to minimize your carbon footprint. Out of season foods trucked in from other areas are one of the greatest negative environmental impacts out there. Eat Local!
