Is eating seasonally and locally better for you?
Here in the UK, we have very strongly defined seasons, therefore, as the weather changes so does the fresh produce that we have available to us. Not only is it more interesting when cooking with new ingredients but there are also a number of health benefits to eating seasonally including…
#1 It tastes great!
Seasonal food is fresher, tastier and more nutritious than food consumed out of season. When fruits and vegetables are picked for consumption that has been naturally ripened on the vine or the tree and harvested at the right time, it will have much more flavor and nutrition. Additionally, foods that are in-season are generally grown closer to your home. This means the freshness of produce is preserved as it has not travelled so far to get to you, creating a more delicious tasting fruit or vegetables.
#2 More environmentally friendly!
Eating seasonally and locally means less transportation, less refrigeration and so on of produce. This greatly reduces the carbon footprint of your food!
#3 Local food supports the local economy!
The money you spend on products from local farmers stays within your local community and helps to support local, small farms. This, therefore, feeds money back into your community by generating jobs and generally stimulating the local economy.
