Looking for some healthy recipes that celebrate the seasons?
There’s something special about moving with the seasons; of feeling connected to the earth as it changes from hot to cool and cold to warm.
Eating seasonally means eating vegetables and fruits that naturally ripen during the specific season you’re in, which leads to you making healthy recipes perfect for each time of year. Seasonal vegetables and fruit are rich in flavor, nutrients, and have fewer pesticides and preservatives applied to them.
Summer vegetables and fruit help protect skin from sun damage and are rich in water to keep us hydrated. Winter produce provides us with warm comfort and filling nutrition. Find the complete list of seasonal fruit and vegetables for all seasons here.
Choosing healthy recipes that use seasonal produce allow for a mindful approach to cooking. Eating in harmony with nature presents us with an opportunity to express intentional and simple living.
For now, I’ve gathered some healthy and delicious plant-based seasonal recipes for breakfast, lunch and supper meals. Enjoy!
