Did you know that eating seasonally tastes great, helps to save you money, is better for the environment – AND it can also be beneficial for your health?
Eating fruits and vegetables that are in season can definitely save you money. It’s basically a supply and demand issue – when there is a lot of something available on the market (or at the market!) the cost generally falls.
Not sure what’s in season and when? Well besides growing your own produce, visiting a farmer’s market is a great way to learn all about seasonality by speaking to the people that grow it. Often they will have some great suggestions for how to cook with it too.
Using seasonal produce to make a healthy soup is a great way to eat well and enjoy the fresh flavours. Not only is it a delicious meal idea for the family (babies love it too!), it is a quick and easy option to reheat for lunch the next day.
Pumpkin is in season now, which means it is not only very affordable but full of flavour. Today’s recipe is for a delicious pumpkin soup that is sure to be a family favourite.
