Why You Should Eat Seasonal Foods

I LOVE to eat with the seasons.

Eating with the seasons ensure that you are getting the freshest produce possible!


Nature knows when the best time is to grow different foods, and you can really taste the difference!
There’s no better way to start your cooking day than by getting a box of fresh produce from Melissa’s delivered right to your door. How great is that?

When you eat with the seasons and you change up your palate with spring, summer, winter and fall,  you not only know that you are getting fresher produce with a better nutrient and vitamin content than if it were grown out of season, but the taste is richer and fuller.

You won’t have to mask the flavors of bland veggies with heavy dressings and other fatty ingredients that you don’t really need.  Tasty vegetables get eaten, so eat seasonally and you know you’re eating the freshest that nature has to offer you.

Starting your meal with a lot of fresh produce will also help you feel fuller longer and keep up that Fit Foodie figure! All of that great fiber helps you feel full and detox, and all those fresh fruits and veggies will feed your body at the cellular level making you feel that much more satisfied.

Eat Healthy!
