Eating with the Seasons

Do you eat seasonally?  We do a little bit, but I really want to try to start making a better effort here.  Not only do you save money (buying in-season produce costs less), but always eating with the seasons will ensure that you are getting a nice variety of fruits and vegetables. It takes some planning ahead, but I’ve been meal planning for a long time now, so that’s nothing new.  The trick will be to start plugging in seasonal recipes instead of the same old same old, which is going to require some investigating.  Here are a few links I’ve found that have some recipes for eating seasonally:

Do you have any sites that you use to help with ideas for seasonal recipes?

 

AND – on a completely unrelated note:  I am freezing.  I went for a walk this morning and ever since I have done nothing but sit and drink coffee.  Worst. Winter. Ever.

    I am trying to eat seasonally as well, but haven’t thought to research it…might be easier if I did. Duh….
    Hard to get out of the habit of convenience of eating what we want WHEN we want it. In addition to being healthier, it helps support the farmers in the US as well as more locally.
