Seasonal eating is the practice of consuming foods that are in season. It’s important because it helps you to get the most nutrients out of your food, which can help you feel better and live longer.

What’s Currently in Season in the UK?

In the UK, the seasonal produce available varies depending on the time of year. Here is a general guide to what’s in season in the UK right now:

  • Spring (March to May): asparagus, artichokes, broad beans, carrots, cauliflower, chicory, chives, courgettes, garlic, lettuce, new potatoes, peas, radishes, rhubarb, spinach.

Keep in mind that availability of produce may vary by region and weather conditions, so it’s wise to check with your local farmers market or greengrocer for up-to-date information on what’s in season.

  • Visit your local farmers market and look for ‘in season’ stickers on produce that you want to buy.

  • If you’re looking for information on what’s in season in your local area, your supermarket’s website can be a great resource. Many supermarkets will feature a section on their website that provides information on the seasonal produce that is currently available, as well as recipes and cooking tips to help you make the most of the fresh ingredients.

Benefits of Eating Seasonally

Eating seasonally is a great way to enjoy the benefits of fresh, local food. You’ll get the best flavour and texture, as well as higher nutritional value. Plus, it’s generally cheaper than buying imported produce at any time of year–and you’re supporting your local economy!
When you eat seasonally, you’re also reducing your environmental footprint by eating locally grown foods that require fewer resources (like fuel) to transport them from farm to fork.

Be creative and combine seasonal recipes.

Conclusion

Seasonal eating is beneficial for your health and the environment. It’s a way to connect with nature, as well as your food source. Seasonal produce is more nutritious than imported varieties because it’s harvested at its peak of ripeness, which means you get more vitamins and minerals in every bite. Also, eating seasonally helps reduce food waste by limiting your purchases to what’s currently available at the market or farmer’s market–instead of stocking up on items that may go bad before you use them all up (or worse yet, throwing away). And lastly, eating seasonally reduces greenhouse gas emissions from transportation costs associated with importing out-of-season produce from other countries!

By embracing seasonal eating, you can pave the way for a healthier lifestyle, and it’s an opportunity to have fun and get creative in the kitchen with seasonal recipes that are sure to please your palate!
