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.

Only slightly. I tend to make more stews/soups in the fall winter. Noting like a nice hot bowl of corn chowder or Portuguese bean soup on a crisp fall evening.

An AAngel appears to be just like everybody else, only more so.

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.

Picnic time! My husband is a total omni, but he loves my veggie sandwiches this time of year. Hummus and tempeh or portabello and sun-dried tomatoes are two of his favorites.

I love salads all year round, but I've started getting e-mails from friends asking for my quinoa salad. It's great this time of year because it can be served at room temperature. Here's the recipe:

I try to eat locally and in-season, so this time of year we eat a lot of corn on the cob, asparagus, etc.

“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

Now that spring is in full swing and summer is just around the corner, do you find that you change your eating habits with the change of season?

Do you eat more fruits & veggies? Grill more & use less gravy and mashed potatoes?

Personally I find that the warmer it is, the less inclined I am to eat meat. It feels to hot and heavy and salads become my best friends!
