Even though modern technology has made all types of food available year round in developed nations there are a few flaws with this model. First, it is more expensive to grow in artificial conditions or truck in out-of-season crops. Second, too often the out of season crops are lacking in flavor, texture and most importantly nutritional value. What can you do to still get the best nourishment from your foods without solely resorting to frozen foods or supplements? EAT IN SEASON!
