We all know that fresh fruits and vegetables are beneficial to our health — but do you know that eating foods that are in season add an extra benefit?  Seasonal fruits and vegetables are a healthier option for us due to nature’s design — the Earth sprouts with foods each season that our bodies need at those specific times.  

For example, watermelon is prominent in the summertime.  It has a high water content and helps to balance the loss of water from our bodies in the hot summer heat.  

To derive strength and vitality, our body needs a boost of essential vitamins and minerals which can be obtained through eating fresh fruits and vegetables – especially those that are in season.  It’s incredible that nature knows exactly what we need at different seasons, but it’s also important that we are mindful of this and listen.  


  • Not sure what is in season in your area? Do a quick Google search.
  • Make a list of your favorites and put them on your fridge.  
  • Make an effort to incorporate these foods on a regular basis into your daily meals.

Aside from the obvious health benefits of eating fresh fruits and veggies that are in season, we get the benefit of feeling vibrant, light and enjoy glowing skin.  Plus, these foods are naturally low in fat and high in fiber.

An important thing to remember, is that seasonal foods are not being forcibly produced in a plant. Rather, they are growing naturally during their peak season – which means they are at their peak flavor and are most cost effective.  

More delicious food, at just the right time for our bodies, with a lower price tag?  It’s a win-win. So, enjoy the freedom of indulging in seasonal fruits and vegetables.
