Why and how to eat seasonally and locally?
A lot of people wonder why eating seasonally and locally is beneficial for them. Well here are some reasons that may change your mind.
First of all, it means eating food that is at the peak of its supply, meaning the prices will be much more affordable and you can save money. Second of all, I'm sure you've never considered the environmental impact of it. Eating seasonally and buying food from local suppliers reduces the amount of distance the food has to do before getting to the consumer. Less transportation, in some cases less preservatives used to keep product "in shape". Finally and most importantly, this habit could significantly increase your chances of getting better, healthier and more tasteful food.
