Shopping seasonally just makes sense. Fresh, seasonal produce not only tastes better, but offers more nutrition, costs less and is more environmentally sustainable. New Zealand has some of the best fresh produce around and Foodbox is here to bring it directly to your door.
One of the best things about buying seasonal produce is that the vegetables and fruit available to us feel so weather appropriate. When you feel the winter chill there’s nothing more nourishing than winter citrus fruit. The Vitamin C in oranges, lemons, limes, mandarins and grapefruit help to combat those nasty colds that go around.
The colder months are a good time to mix up your traditional roast vege salads with the addition of things like yams, butternut, swedes and parsnips. They’ll add depth of flavour to your warming winter soups and stews. Winter greens like spinach and kale are incredibly nutritious and tasty. Did you know, Kale is known as one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. What could be better at a time of year when your body is most vulnerable to illness?
