Keepin' it Seasonal

If it is the middle of a 40 degree summer, where is our English Spinach coming from? How many kilometres of freighting and kilowatts of refridgeration have been used to bring this out of season leaf onto the market shelf? I strongly believe that our dietary choices/preferences can have some of the largest impacts on climate change and sustainable development as a whole. My step for 2019 will be to restrict my diet by consuming "in season" produce only. I will do this by continuously researching the fruits, vegetables, grains and nuts that are in season (via websites such as environmentvictoria.org.au) and only purchasing these from local farmers at the markets around town. I plan on creating blog posts explaining the connection between out of season eating, the produce mileage associated with it as well as the detrimental environmental impacts it causes (blog currently under construction, check out the FriedEggsClub soon!)
