Why eat seasonally?

Nutritional Value – often harvested at its peak ripeness means it is fresher and more nutrient-dense. 

Better Flavour – produce that is in season is often picked at its prime, offering superior taste compared to items that have been transported long distances and stored for extended periods.

Promotes Variety – Eating seasonally encourages a diverse diet. Different seasons offer a variety of fruits, vegetables, and other crops. Embracing this variety in your diet ensures you receive a broad spectrum of nutrients.

December picks…

Brussel Sprouts: Rich in gut-loving fibre which also helps stabilise blood glucose levels, and plenty of vitamins C and K.

Figs: High in antioxidants for lowering inflammation, and they contain prebiotics for gut health.

Chestnuts: A good source of minerals, copper and manganese in particular which both contribute to a healthy immune system.  

Carrots: A versatile vegetable high in beta-carotene, that helps the body produce vitamin A.
