Should You Shop Seasonally?
Most of us shop for fruits and vegetables based solely on whatever we feel like eating. But health specialists say we should take a leaf out of our parents’ books and start shopping for produce that is in season. Back in the day, the only fruits and vegetables available were the ones that were in season; after all, they were not as likely to be imported from all over the world, leaving only the fruits and vegetables that were locally grown. Now, grocery stores carry many fruits and vegetables all year round, though they have to be imported from distant places.
