HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR NUTRITION by eating seasonally


Back in the day, eating seasonally was the norm and we were more in tune with nature. But with the advances in travel and technology, everything and anything is available to us at any time of the year. This helps us to keep our manus varied and we can enjoy our favourites all year round.

However, if the events of the last few months have taught us anything, it's how much more care we need to take of ourselves, our communities, and the world around us. Eating seasonally is something we can all do, and we should: it gives us the freshest, and therefore tastiest, produce. It hasn’t been chilled or artificially ripened – both of which are processes that affect the flavour and also have a detrimental effect on the nutritional value of produce.
