Finding Peak Flavor
Better-tasting food isn’t the only benefit of eating seasonally in Illinois. Fresh fruit and veggies are higher in vitamins and minerals than their shelf-tired or frozen counterparts. You’ll need less salt and sugar to make meals taste great. And if you buy locally grown food, you’ll also support the local economy. You’ll spend less, too—making seasonal eating one of those things that just makes good sense. Watch for more surprising reasons to shop seasonally.
