You can better plan your meals around what’s in season with the seasonal food guide available from the Natural Resources Defense Council.
Now that winter is at our doorstep, we here in the northeast can look forward to seasonal beets, cabbage, carrots, onions, oysters, potatoes, rutabaga, snap peas, squash, and turkey.
Eating seasonally is a great reason to try new foods. Check out the seasonal recipe guides from Allrecipes, Epicurious, The Food Network, and Cooking Light. Martha Stewart's Seasonal Produce Recipe Guide, in addition to offering seasonal recipes, lets you know what produce is in season, what to look for when selecting a particular type of produce, and how it should be stored.
Try eating seasonally. Your taste buds, wallet, and planet will thank you!
