Tip of the Week: Stick with Seasonal

3.25.2010
Now that spring has sprung, a whole new crop of seasonal foods are available. Not only are seasonal foods healthy, but they are also environmentally friendly. When you purchase foods in-season, they are more readily available from local farmers meaning there is less travel time between when the food is picked to when you eat it. This results in you receiving a fresher product more rich in nutrients, plus with the cuts to travel time, less fuel is burned to harm the environment. Some seasonal spring foods include: asparagus, beets, mushrooms, peas, spinach, raspberries, and strawberries. Check out a local farmer's market to get your seasonal foods!
