Getting Produce During The Right Season

Nutrition Add comments

Question: “If I can get produce all year-round, why do I care what’s in season?”

Answer: Because out of season produce tastes lousy and has weird textures.

Your recipes are only going to be as good as the ingredients you use – and if you want to stick to your eating plan, substandard produce will actually make things taste worse.

Fruits and veggies out of season are likely to be mealy and flavorless.

Use this guide for choosing produce:

Apples: March, April, May

Artichokes: March, April, May
