Eating in season

Eating in season is good for you and for the planet. If you eat fruit and vegetable which are in season in your country or continent then it doesn’t have to be transported half way round the world for you to eat it, less air miles, low carbon foods.

But also eating in season means that even if you’re not opting for organic (choice or financial reasons) you’re probably exposing yourself to fewer chemicals since the food doesn’t have to be encouraged to grow at a time when it shouldn’t be.

Here’s a handy chart to show you some basic foods and when they’re in season.
