What does it mean to eat “in-season” and how does it benefit you?
At Health For A Purpose, we focus on health down to the cellular level. Removing the distraction of illness and disease to allow your body to heal as God designed. Did you know something as simple as eating local and in-season gives you maximum health benefits with minimal effort?
In-season produce doesn’t just taste better, it’s better for you! It’s true! Foods that are grown and consumed during their appropriate seasons are naturally more nutritionally dense, meaning that you are giving your body the best you possibly can.
Along with that, believe it or not, the sun plays a huge role in how well the nutrients from your seasonal produce are absorbed. The sunshine is different in different places for each season, when the sun hits our microbiome, it empowers us to absorb nutrients differently. So, the sun helps us to absorb the nutrients from seasonal vegetables and fruits more, meaning you get even more when you focus on a seasonal diet!
Why is important to prioritize local produce? Shopping locally, whether it is at your Farmer’s Market or from a local farm, has direct benefits as well. You have the opportunity to speak to the people who are growing and harvesting your produce. They can take the time to help you understand more about what is at its peak and in-season. You can also learn how they cultivate their produce to ensure that you are getting the highest quality, organic food! Additional benefits to shopping locally include supporting your communities’ economy and showing our Earth love by reducing the emissions typically caused by shipping.
