A Guide to Eat Seasonally By The Wellness Warrior

If you want to get the absolute most nutrients from your food, it’s important to eat food that’s in season. This usually means that what you’re eating has been grown locally to you rather than being flown in from the other side of the world and lost half its goodness along the way. Foods that are in season are generally foods that our bodies require at that particular time. This is why root veggies and grounding foods are in season during winter and leafy greens and cooling fruits are in season during summer.

When you grow your food yourself, it’s also important to know what’s in season and when so that you can plant and nurture produce suited to your current conditions and climate.

Seasonality varies region to region, but this is a general glance at what’s in season in Australia at different times of the year.
