Eat Seasonally – Even in Winter!
Eating seasonally is a great idea any time of the year. It’s a win-win. Seasonal produce is naturally the highest quality (and tastiest) produce, with less negative impact on the environment. At first glance, the seasonal selection during the winter might seem less impressive than the summer smorgasbord, but winter has lots to offer: squashes, root vegetables, cabbages, kale…and these veggies have a little something extra you may not know about. They’re high in nature’s natural immunity boosters: vitamin C, beta carotene, and vitamin K. Couldn’t be better timing to help fight colds and flu!
