Eating “seasonal” may seem like a recent trend, but it has been around for many generations. Affordable produce is easy to find, whether its winter or summer, especially in the sunny state of California. You just need to know where to look! The key to healthy eating throughout the year is to buy seasonal produce. We will be focusing on seasonal vegetables because let’s face it, sometimes we need a little more convincing when it comes to enjoying our vegetables compared with fruit. Let’s get started with our story of seasonal vegetables by discussing the benefits of eating in season!

The Winter season can be a fun and exciting time but it’s also a period of distraction from working toward our best selves. With the holidays ending, it can be challenging to get back into our healthy routines and tend to lose the motivation to stay active and head outdoors. Binge-watching your favorite show along with a warm bowl of yummy chowder can seem much more enticing than braving the cold and getting some physical activity. Well, I don’t blame you! As the temperatures continue to drop and the risks of catching the common cold and flu increase, we want to make sure our bodies are properly nourished to fight off the nasty germs.
