When buying ingredients at the grocery store the thought of what products are actually in season doesn't cross most people's minds. But, eating seasonally is SOOO important for your health!!
Your body is programmed to eat what is growing around you based on the weather.
Choosing local farmers (try the farmers market!), shopping the seasonal produce (usually it's found in bulk and at great prices!), and basing your menus on what is in season (which is exactly how we build our menus!) is a crucial step in living a healthy life. :)

Eating seasonally is a fantastic way to optimize your health!!
I won't write a lengthy post here because it is all in the video, but your body KNOWS what season it is. It knows that the foods growing around you contain the nutrients it needs now.
