Keeping Seasonal in Spring

IT’S SPRING!       IT’S SPRING!       IT’S SPRING!

Can you tell we’re excited?

Spring brings colour, warmth, light and love! But it also brings amazing, fresh foods to boost your energy and thrill the taste buds!

Eating seasonally ensures that you are getting the fullest flavour and highest nutritional value from your fruits and veggies. Eating seasonally is far more natural as the foods require less human assistance to thrive. It’s also a great way to support local farmers and learn how to create a wide variety of dishes based on what’s in season!
