Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables

When buying seasonal produce, you not only save money but also prepare the best tasting meals since the ingredients are fresh. In your local supermarket and farmer’s market, check for the brief listed seasonal fruits and vegetables. This summer, the vegetables that are in season are radishes, arugula, cucumbers, beets, bell peppers, carrots, zucchini, garlic, and corn. On the other hand, the fruits in season are apricots, plums, cherries, blackberries, nectarines, strawberries, peaches, tomatoes, passion fruit, melon, lemon, and limes.
Eating seasonally is not only better for your health, it also promotes balance with both the earth’s resources and its life forms. Overall, we should embrace natural diversity and its changes. Just because technology makes it possible for us to eat certain fruits and vegetables does not mean that we should. Studies have shown that nonorganic farming can cause severe damages to our environment and communities. In order to preserve foods that are out of season, the produce is often covered in pesticides, waxes, and preservatives in order to maintain the fresh appearance. In addition, the longer produce sits on the shelves in stores, the more nutrients they tend to lose. It is encouraged to go out and support your local farmer’s market because it cost less to farmers to harvest at the peak of its season, and you as a consumer will save money. There is a win, win scenario in pursuit of saving money and sustaining a healthy lifestyle.
