Getting the Most Nutrition
Eat What’s In Season! Spring has finally sprung and brought plenty of produce with it! In the winter months, we can get our hands on a lot of fruits and veggies but they are generally imported from another country, taking the word “fresh” off their labels.
The difference between in-season, local produce and something that has seen its fair share of shipping yards is a major loss of nutrients. Put simply, the second a piece of produce has been picked, it begins to decompose and lose its nutritional value.
All of these delicious fruits and vegetables are in season in April. Take this list with you on your next grocery run:Arugula (Rocket)
- Dandelion greens
- Fava Beans
- Fiddlehead Fern
- Leeks (end of season)
- Lettuce (leaf and head)
- Morel Mushrooms
- Sweet Onions
By picking your produce wisely you can take full advantage of your daily dose!
