I am a big supporter of eating locally produced food that is in season. Our bodies were designed to consume certain foods in certain seasons. When it’s cold outside, our bodies don’t crave cooling foods like watermelon or pineapple. We crave warm, earthy foods like sweet potato, dense protein and fats. As spring approaches, I wanted to talk a bit about what some of the best foods to consume are if you are trying to eat “in season.”
Spring is a great time to focus on eating your leafy greens! Foods like swiss chard, spinach, romaine lettuce, parsley and basil. Enjoy them in salads, green juices or as side dishes! Greens are one of my all time favorite foods. Artichokes, asparagus, garlic, lemons, peas and strawberries are also great foods to enjoy in the spring.
By feeding your body the foods that are most appropriate for your season and locale, you are giving your body the nourishment it needs to thrive optimally in your particular climate. Our bodies are truly amazing – when we listen to them and fuel them with what they need to thrive, it is incredible what they can achieve.
