My favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon is browse the local farmer's market and I'm loving the dahlias everywhere. Eating a diet from in-season fruits & veggies provides many benefits for you and the environment.
Seasonal foods are picked at the peak of their freshness which means you are getting the optimal amount of nutrients from your food. Eating foods based on season (instead of what is in the grocery store) creates a diversity in your diet and creates a natural balance for your digestion.
Autumn is focused on warming food such as carrots, apples, sweet potatoes, onions, cabbage and winter squash are soothing to the soul when there is a chill in the air. Peppercorn, ginger and mustard seed are warming spices that the body appreciates this time of the year.
The economic benefits are great too! Purchasing local produce reduces your carbon footprint & encourages the growth of small farms.
