Do you focus on including more seasonal and local Fruits and Vegetables in your diet? Why should you and how does that benefit the environment? So glad you asked.
Buying local and seasonal foods helps reduces pollution and gasoline use as there is no need to ship the food across the country. In addition, your money goes to the farmers in your community and your family gets fresher fruits and vegetables.
Personally, we enjoy the fruits and vegetables that each new seasons brings as it encourages us to keep variety in our diet and honestly, don’t you look forward to switching it up after a while? We are also excited to be starting our garden any day now.
Below is a great map from Epicurious that tells you what is fresh in your state any given month.
