Eat With The Seasons

For so many of us, the change in season means a shift in our approach to lifestyle, diet and health. For us, it’s the perfect time to celebrate all the benefits that come with eating plenty of fresh, organic fruit, vegetables and salads.

Find out more about what makes organic food different, see what’s in season this month, hear from the people that grow Soil Association-certified organic fruit and veg and get your hands dirty with some of the best seasonal recipes around. 

Organic food is food as it should be.

Why Organic?

When you see the organic symbol, you can be sure what you buy has been produced to the highest standards.
Organic always means; fewer pesticides, no artificial additives or preservatives, the highest standards of animal welfare and no GM ingredients.

My choice to eat organic and seasonal produce means I'm eating food at its best! It not only tastes better but it is also great for the environment reducing our carbon footprint by cutting food miles and supporting UK organic farmers and producers who are working with nature.

Did You Know?

In 2014, a ground-breaking study by Newcastle University found that organic fruit and veg crops are up to 60% higher in a number of key antioxidants than conventionally-grown crops. The team found that a switch to eating organic fruit, vegetable and cereals – and food made from them – would provide additional antioxidants equivalent to eating between 1-2 extra portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

Hero Veg!

The misnamed Jerusalem artichoke has no real link with Jerusalem, and isn't related to other artichokes. It looks a bit like a knobbly pink-skinned ginger root and has a sweet, nutty flavour, reminiscent of water chestnuts.

Although not widely used it is an inexpensive and versatile food that can be used both raw and cooked and makes a delicious soup
