Here’s my monthly list of produce for the month of April. As I’ve been saying, it’s not that we should only consume these types of produce during this month but there are certainly advantages to consuming seasonal foods. The most important is that they preserve and maintain their nutritional properties intact. It maintains its contribution of vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients. Just as they retain their nutritional benefits they also maintain their organoleptic qualities, ie: texture, appearance and much more intense flavor. Since they have grown naturally in trees or in the soil without the use of products that favor their rapid development, thus achieving its maturation at the right moment.
On the other hand, not only can we talk about advantages and benefits in terms of consumption, but also other collateral advantages, such as the price that might be cheaper if grown naturally 😉
Here’s the list:
- Collard Greens
- Green Peas
- Swiss Chard
