This week for my Health in a Handbasket Segment on Good Day Rochester on 13 WHAM News I talked about our Topic of the Week – How to spring clean your diet with seasonal fruits and vegetables! Sure we’ve gotten more snow in April than we have all winter here in the North East, but spring is just around the corner and it is the best time to start cleaning up your diet! ♥

Seasonal eating is simple, you mostly eat food that is in season for your geographical location and during that crops harvest time. You likely already eat many foods seasonally such as squash in the fall and citrus in the winter. Not only does in-season produce taste amazing but it also has so many benefits for our health and the environment.
Now is a great time to start including more fruits and vegetables into your diet! Spring and summer are almost here so be sure to take advantage of the food that is locally grown and sold at your local farmers market whenever possible. And as an avid and passionate gardener, I also always recommend planting your own back yard garden!!Spring clean your #diet with seasonal #produce! New video! #thisisroc Click To Tweet
