Not only is eating seasonally more environmentally friendly and good for your wallet, but it can actually be more nutritious. Seasonal fruits and vegetables are typically harvested at their peak, which means these foods taste better, and are even better for you.  If you choose to eat seasonally by shopping at your local farmer’s market, you’re supporting local, sustainable practices and family farmers.  Eating with the seasons is also a great way to step outside of your comfort zone and try new fruits and vegetables.  Here are some recipes using common winter produce to get you started:

1. ) Cauliflower

Whole Roasted Cauliflower

Landlocked Ceviche

2.) Fennel

Fat Free Vegan Roasted Brussel Sprouts, Fennel and Portobello Mushrooms

From Plants to Politics
From Plants to Politics

I try not to be overly dramatic in my writing, but I think most of us would agree we live in troubled times. We might define these troubles differently, but most of us have this sense.
