“Ancient Method” SUPERCHARGES Your Fruits and Veggies
You know that fruit and vegetables are good for you.
But did you know that not all fruit is created equal?
To get the most nutritional bang for your buck, you need to know WHAT to eat… and WHEN to eat it.
To be clear: this isn’t a new fad diet.
It’s an ancient way of eating that gives your body exactly what it needs, exactly when it needs it.
Here’s what you need to know.
WHEN you eat your fruit and vegetables is just as important as WHAT you eat.
I’m not talking about the time of day… I’m talking about the season of the year.
It’s called seasonal eating, and it’s just what it sounds like: eating produce when it’s in season.
It’s good for your health and the environment—which shouldn’t be too surprising, since it’s how produce was meant to be consumed.
Before freezing, refrigeration, and preservatives – people ate what was grown locally and in season.
And even though you can eat any fruit you want whenever you want it (like strawberries in January or squash in May), that doesn’t mean you should.
You see, produce that’s in season has a higher nutritional value.
The longer produce sits after harvesting, the lower the phytonutrient content. (And you can imagine how long it would take an avocado in central America to make it all the way to Arizona!)
Plus, the nutrient content can vary based on when it’s grown.
For example, one study found that broccoli grown in season (in the fall) had TWICE as much vitamin C as broccoli grown out of season (in the spring).
In-season produce also gives your body what it needs WHEN it needs it. Take citrus fruit, for example.
It’s grown in the winter, and it’s extremely high in vitamin C.
This is a key nutrient your body needs to help prevent infections that are more common in the winter, like the cold and flu.
Not to mention the fact that out-of-season produce is often gassed, irradiated, and preserved in wax to extend the shelf life—something that ruins the quality AND the taste.
When you buy locally, you know what you’re getting.
I can’t say the same for produce grown overseas.
There’s no telling what their regulations are for pesticides and herbicides. There’s no telling whether they regulate soil contamination or quality.
Plus, in-season produce just tastes better!
Oh, and it’ll cost less too, since you don’t have to pay for its trip around the globe.
The bottom line?
All fruit and vegetables are going to provide you with the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy and avoid disease.
But in-season produce will give you more bang for your (nutritional) buck.

P.S. As spring weather approaches and fruits become more readily available, there’s one “super fruit” you need to be reaching for that STOPS disease. Go here and find out what fruit you need to be eating, but probably aren’t.
