It's In Season this Spring!

Your Health Tune Up for Spring

Monitoring your spring harvest calendar is a great way to get foods at their highest nutritional value. Eating with the seasons means you shop from grocers and markets that buy directly from local farmers first. Educating yourself on how to eat for maximum nutrition for good health means you pay close attention to whats on sale and whats plentiful in the produce section.

For April, May and June most states will find the following in season:
cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, collards, spinach, peas, kale, lettuces, radishes, turnips, asparagus, beets, strawberries, basil, beans, blueberries, broccoli, garlic, okra, onion, peaches, potatoes, squash, cantaloupe, corn, cucumber, eggplants, peppers, tomatoes, watermelon, figs, and grapes.

How to utilize this info:
1: Plan your meals around what's available. 
2: Check with your local naturopath to test for nutrient deficiency if you find your self craving things that are processed or not in season.
3: If you take a chemical drug prescription for a food related disease, find out which nutrients are being inhibited by the medications, this will also explain side effects you may be experiencing and work towards changing your eating lifestyle to reduce or eliminate the medicinal crutch.
