Seasonal Fruit and Vegetables - January
Thursday, January 13, 2022 @ 10:34 AM

Food in season is cheaper and tastes much better. No arguments there!

Throughout the year we can consume almost any type of food, even though it is not the optimal time for its harvest. This allows us to eat a very varied diet, but it hurts the environment ... and our pockets. 

Consuming fruits and vegetables in season is cheaper than buying foods that should not be on the market during a certain time of year. In addition, it is beneficial for our bodies and has great environmental benefits.

When food is in season, it indicates that it is the best time to consume it, since it maintains a large part of its nutrients. It is also noticeable in its flavour since the ripening process is not done artificially.



Fruits that are at their best are avocado, raspberry, kiwi, lemon, tangerine, apple, oranges, banana, and grapefruit. January is also a good month to take advantage of the harvest of the last persimmons and custard apples of the season. Also, in January, the first strawberries begin to appear on the market.



The list of seasonal vegetables in January is extensive too. At this time of year, we can enjoy the following foods in their fullness: chard, garlic, artichoke, celery, aubergine, broccoli, zucchini, thistle, red cabbage, cauliflower, endive, endive, spinach, pea, broad bean, green bean, lettuce, cucumber, pepper, leek, radish, beet, cabbage, tomato and carrot.


Maybe we should all start paying attention to the seasons, it will benefit us in many ways.
