February - What's In Season

IMG_6366.PNG

So many of you have already taken my challenge to make this the year of the meatless meal and have purchased the EBNL Meatless Meal Recipe Book to guide you along the way. There is so much health and vitality waiting for you on the other side of making the decision to add more plant based meals to your diet. So now that you’ve made this wonderful decision  you get to see what all the fuss is about in enjoying the gift of eating produce that is fresh, local and in season.  Choosing to eat this way is a magical gift to your body, the environment, the local economy and of course your taste buds. Think about it…would you prefer a bunch of fresh greens just picked from the garden or greens that  have travelled across country in a truck for days? Not to mention it just tastes better and you are eating the same food that your local farmers are feeding their family. Give your body a fighting chance and #ShopFresh #ShopLocal #ShopInSeason.

Here are the foods that are at their peak of excellence in February.  Get as many of these jewels on your plate as you can this month and #EatYourMedicine for better health. I love to eat plenty of greens, root vegetables and make hearty soups and roasted vegetables year round, but there’s just something about enjoying them this time of year wouldn’t you agree? And it doesn’t matter if you eat them raw, roasted, steamed, juiced or in a smoothie just be sure to eat them.
