seasonal variety

Back to basic human nature, we were designed to eat with the seasons. Bulk up on fruit in the summer, store fat and survive the more sparse giving season of winter. Repeat.

But somehow we’ve gone off course, thanks to mass farming and our “must-have-now” society, and we have all things accessible at all times. Not so good for our innate cyclical nature and needs as a human being. And likely a huge contributing factor to our health issues as a society. So much on this topic, but honestly it’s simple to re-calibrate.

Just let your vegetables and fruits follow the seasons and your location.

Different climates and areas offer different harvesting times and seasons so it’s important to know what’s available to you whether you’re in the West Coast climate, East Coast or somewhere in between.

Luckily some really smart people are ahead of us all and have created a ton of resources to tap into.
