Health, In the news

All in good time: “The Bountiful Year”

I am a huge believer in the superiority of seasonal produce. I cannot complain that these days you can pretty much find whatever fruits/vegetables you want whenever you want them at the supermarket, because it does come in handy more than just occasionally. But it also always makes me so happy how much juicier cucumbers taste in the summer, or how much crunchier french fries turn out in the peak harvest season of potatoes (late summer/early fall). So when I came across this awesome chart about produce seasonality while browsing through Fast Company yesterday, I had to share it with all of you. The chart details what is at its peak season when based on the climate and environment of the Western United States, so obviously it will vary slightly depending on where you live…but still a very useful guide. Hurry up and enjoy the last of the season’s artichokes and asparagus before July arrives! And contrary to what we were taught as kids, according to this chart it might not be the season for an apple a day. But how about strawberries, or peaches, or plums every day? Not too shabby.

In good health,

F
