Eating Seasonal

Sustainability

It’s freezing, constantly dark outside, and the onlyvegetables in season are carrots and cabbage. That’s winter in Scandinavia foryou. I was raised in my household to only eat fruits and vegetables that are inseason. It’s a great way to make sure you’re not eating stuff that was grownthousands of miles away and then shipped in a giant truck or plane. Seasonalproduce is also cheaper and filled with more nutrients due to being fresher.

Eating seasonal forces me to get creative with my cookinginstead of always getting what I want. Different fruits, nuts, and saladdressings can really spice up dull winter greens like cabbage.   

I find myself more in tune with nature. I’m always lookingforward to seasons changing and buying the fresh, tasty vegetables I crave. Nothingis worse than over-paying for a sad watermelon or cucumber that tastes likewater.

I do break the rules sometimes. The Danish climate makes it nearly impossible to grow bananas, oranges, avocados, etc. I buy this stuff year round because, well, I just can’t live without it! But do try to change your vegetable purchasing habits gradually; your wallet and taste buds will thank you.
