What’s in-season?

August 6th, 2014

Being a locavore has never been easier.

There are so many  local fruits and vegetables (along with organic varieties) available everywhere at this time of year. There is and ever growing demand from people like you an I that has made buying locally grown food so much easier.

Almost every store large and small are making the effort to have local fruits and vegetables for us to buy and we are seeing more free-range eggs, flours, legumes, meats and poultry to name a few. The list is growing and will continue to grow as we make healthier food choices.

Every season has a bounty of new delicious flavours that will freshen up your recipes!

Here are some of my personal favorites that are in-season now, and remember, from year to year we may see some foods in-season earlier or later than previous years.

Live simple, and delicious!
