3 Good Reasons to Eat With the Season
By Genevieve Cunningham
The change of season is coming. Even if you live in an area without the colorful leaves and cool winds, the beginning of fall is still exciting. It means kids go back to school and the holidays are on their way. And for most people, it also means delicious comfort food! Fall food is some of the best, but some people have trouble making the switch. Why bother, right? Your menu is already set! But as it turns out, changing your food with the season is a really good idea. If you're hesitant to make the switch, take a look at these good reasons to change your diet with your wardrobe this fall.
It Keeps Your Diet Interesting
An interesting diet is so much easier to stick with. It gets boring eating salads all the time. It gets boring eating the same menu day in and day out. Changing your vegetables and recipes with the season allows for some variety. It means at least four times per year, you get to overhaul your menu! If you like a little variety, consider checking out healthy fall foods for this season.
Foods that are in season are much more affordable. Trying to buy a summer fruit in the dead of winter is expensive! Fall often brings various types of squash, beets, onion, and a wide variety of greens. This means new ingredients for stews and casseroles and even salads. And these new additions won't break the bank. If you like the idea of saving money, buying in season is the way to go.
It Keeps You Feeling Motivated
Having to learn and try new recipes can help keep your motivation alive. It drives away the boredom and makes you look forward to cooking dinner. Sometimes we just need life to be fresh! And changing your menu while still striving for health is a great way to keep your motivation moving forward.
If you like the fall (and seriously, who doesn't?!), then use these tips to change up your diet with the incoming season. Doing so can help you stay healthy, keep it interesting, and maybe even save money too. An ever-evolving diet is good for us, so use this new season as a chance to get yours on the right (and healthy!) track.
