Seasonal fruit vegetables
3 min read
Storing and transporting fruits and vegetables can destroy many nutrients that our bodies need because it extends the time in which they're exposed to the elements...

By eating fruits and vegetables that are in season, we are decreasing the time spent from paddock to plate, which maximises the nutritional value of the food. It also means that we are eating the tastier fruits and vegetables that are in season and meeting our needs for that time of year! Is it a coincidence that we have an abundance of vitamin C containing citrus as we are entering cold and flu season? We think not!
