Each change in season brings a fresh new range of healthy produce, full of diverse flavours and vital nutrients that nourish us from the inside out.
Consuming seasonal fruit and veggies means you are eating foods that are naturally higher in nutrients that your body needs and craves at that time of year. In the cooler months of the year, for example, seasonal produce is naturally higher in nutrients that are essential for healthy immune functioning like Vitamin C, antibacterial and antiviral components.
In-season fruit and veg is also more flavoursome and boasts incredible texture and crunch because it comes fresh, straight from local farms. As it doesn’t need to be stored for excessive periods of time or travel half way around the world, it is better for the planet too! Due to short farm-to-plate time, nutrients like vitamin C, folate, antioxidants and phytochemicals which are susceptible to losses during storage and transportation, are found in higher amounts in seasonal produce.
