Eating Seasonally (1868 hits)



What’s in season right now?

What’s best in winter is not the same as what’s best in summer. Finding out what’s in season is as easy as checking out the slideshow below.

1. Spring
Add some berries to breakfast
Strawberries are a sweet way to start the day.
Toss it up with fresh spring greens
Throw together some butter lettuce, spinach, and watercress.
Snack on something different
Try crunching on a fresh snow pea or dip an endive leaf into some hummus.

2. Summer
Cool down with a smoothie
Blend nonfat yogurt with fresh summer berries.
Grill it lean and mean
Burgers on the grill are great; just choose meat that’s at least 90% lean.
Have fresh veggies with lunch
Pile on the tomatoes, cucumbers, and lettuce.

3. Fall
Enjoy the pick of the crop
Apples and pears are plentiful and make a convenient, healthy snack.
Discover your roots
Sweet potatoes are sweet, flavorful, and can keep for up to 2 weeks.
Keep school nights simple
Forget gourmet meals and pick up a precooked rotisserie chicken for dinner.

4. Winter
Slow down and slow cook
With a slow cooker, soups and stews are easy to make.
See what’s in season
Look for clementines, pears, Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, and other tasty winter fruits and vegetables.
