Each season brings new flavors that you can bring to the menu. Washington has a fantastic climate that supports a range of growing conditions for different produce. Not only can seasonal produce taste better, it can potentially have more nutrients then it’s imported counterparts, especially in the off season.
When shopping at the grocery store, look for fresh or frozen produce that is from Washington state. One thing to note though is frozen produce tend to be harvested at its peak ripeness and then flash frozen (frozen extremely quickly) to minimize loss of nutrients. Buying frozen produce is cost effective and can help you meal plan better.
