Sportset Fit Tip
Eating the seasons.
Of course we know the importance of eating fruits and vegetables. In fact these nutrient dense foods are the cornerstone of a healthy human diet. The vast selection makes it almost impossible to get bored.
Consider though, narrowing your choices a bit to what is in season and what is local. Our bodies actually adjust to the fruits and vegetables that grow in the climates we live in. We get more from their nutrients because our physiology has a mechanism for responding to our surrounding natural environment. It’s a shining example of human adaptation.
Imported produce is often injected with a small dose of radiation to kill germs after traveling long distances. Harvesting something that will endure long travel erodes the full spectrum of nutrients that it originally had – organic or not.
On a final note it’s always cheaper to eat what’s in season and available locally. So what is in season now in the Northeast?
- green onions
