“Now that the weather is a bit warmer, many of us are thinking about getting outdoors to enjoy the spring air and sunshine.
May offers a welcome chance to get out there and be active, whether it’s by taking a walk with friends (good for the body and the soul!), enjoying a bike ride or — depending on the temperatures where you live — taking a refreshing dip in the nearest body of water.
All of those activities require fuel, which can come from eating healthy foods — particularly the fruits and vegetables that are at their peak this time of year.”
Just a note: be aware that this is a general guide, always check on your local farm or market what is in season right now and buy it fresh locally grown whenever possible. The produce may be harvested or grown in different times of the year, it all depends on the region and climate.
When produce is in season locally, the relative abundance of the crop usually makes it less expensive. Fresh, locally harvested foods have their full, whole flavours intact, which they release to us when we eat them.
