“Times of transition are strenuous, but I love them. They are an opportunity to purge, rethink priorities, and be intentional about new habits. We can make our new normal any way we want." - Kristin Armstrong, Olympic Gold Medalist
Changing With The Seasons
Modern distribution systems have made it possible to eat similar foods year round without much change. Unless they traveled great distances, our ancestors had different diets for different seasons. Before improved transportation, food availability changed with winter, spring, summer and fall. These days, when it gets too cold for tomatoes in the midwest, you can still get them from Florida. Likewise, if you live in Canada or New York, you can still enjoy bananas and oranges grown thousands of miles away.
There are some considerations though. Produce picked before it's ripe and then trucked a thousand miles doesn't have the same nutrient profile or great flavor as it does when picked ripe. For instance, compare a ripe tomato out of the garden with one that's been picked green and trucked to the grocery store.
Eat in season and enjoy the rich flavors of local produce. With fall fast approaching in the midwest, we'll soon be enjoying freshly dug sweet potatoes and fall greens with our grass-fed beef ribeye. How about pasture raised pork chops with a delicious fall fruit medley? Learn more about what's in season locally. Get out and visit your local organic orchard and farmer's market. Know your food...know your farmer!
