Before factory farming and preservatives, people only had one option: to eat seasonally. As the years have gone by and the world has progressed we’ve become used to buying strawberries, corn on the cob, or peaches all year round. We don’t even give it a second thought.
But convenience usually comes with a price. I talk a lot about how society has become dependent on these conveniences: fast food, fast fashion, and fast service. If our food is 10 minutes late we’re angry and inconvenienced.
I’m not suggesting that we start living like pioneers and churn our own butter. I’m also not against a lot of our technological advances. Without them, there are a lot of fruits and veggies I’d never get to eat living up here in Canada.
But I do think we need to slow down and get back to our roots. Become reconnected with nature, know where our food is coming from, shop locally and, eat seasonally.
Not everybody will have access to a farmer’s market or get to know their local farmers by name, but that’s okay. You can still shop in-season foods at the grocery store!
Eating seasonally is actually easy and a lot cheaper than it sounds. And best of all, it’s more nutritious and sustainable.
What’s in Season in the Fall?
Eating seasonally helps us connect more to nature. Both physically and spiritually. This is a part of slowing down and not always wishing for a different season. I think fall is one of the easiest seasons to eat seasonally because who doesn’t want pumpkin everything and hearty soups?
