December: What's In Season Now!

Before we run through some of the plantbased ingredients that are perfect for your plate this month, let's explore some of the benefits to eating seasonally!

  • Fruits and vegetables are fresher which means they'll also be more nutrient dense and flavourful

  • Seasonal produce is cheaper as it hasn't had to travel a long way to get to us

  • Scarcity drives up prices so buying food that's in season rather than imported also reduces costs

  • Buying seasonally reduces energy, transportation and CO2 emissions that would otherwise be expended on alternatives

  • Better for our bodies as we connect with nature's seasons through our plates

  • Supports local businesses and helps reduce waste
