In most climates, different fruits and vegetables are grown and harvested naturally depending on the season. For instance, winter foods include kale, oranges, and pumpkin, while strawberries, tomatoes, zucchini, and plums are typically summer foods (unless you are lucky enough to live somewhere where they are grown year-round). At the grocery store, we can find foods that aren’t in season because they are either transported from faraway regions where they are in season, or they are produced in artificial conditions that require extra assistance such as energy or water (i.e., heated greenhouses). If produce is transported long distances, it is usually picked early before it’s fully ripened. This means that chemicals and waxes (such as ripening chemicals, preservatives, and irradiation) are often sprayed onto the produce to protect it during the trip. Eating seasonally means you are likely avoiding the chemicals, food miles, and the extra energy it takes to eat foods that aren’t in season. In addition, seasonal foods can be less expensive and taste better. Because it is picked only when it’s naturally ripe, seasonal produce retains all of the nutrients and flavor that is lost when food is harvested prematurely.View the website
