Seasonal Eating for Summer

Every part of the world has different seasons. Even the different states will be different. This great tool from Seasonal Table is an interactive guide that lets you select your state and the season to see what’s freshest near you. When you eat fresh, whole foods that are in season, you have the opportunity to save money (seasonal food is cheaper!), help the environment (it has a lower carbon footprint), add extra nutrition to your diet (season food is picked at the height of its nutrition), and build variety into your diet!
