Are you wondering when we have all the fruits, vegetables, nuts, cereals and grains available to us at all supermarkets throughout the year then why we should choose the right ones with respect to the right season?

Let me tell you this that the reason we need to stick to these seasonal food items is that they are tastier and naturally ripened. It is affordable to buy them when in season and you can stock up for the future. This way you are naturally preserving them too. The Natural colour and flavours are retained well in the particular months. Our bodies needs change with the season. Hence to keep ourselves at the best functioning we need to make sure to eat the right thing at the right time.

Take a look at what’s available when and make the right choice:

Summer [April-June]:

In summer due to heat our body perspires a lot and because of heat we tend to eat less heavy food and prefer to have more liquids. The nature is well designed and provides us with the right produce to keep us healthy, energetic and hydrated during this season.
