One of the things I constantly learn and relearn is the importance of eating seasonally.
Whenever I embark on any kind of new dietary plan or restriction or, really, when I want to eat a little cleaner, going to the farmer’s market is my absolute go-to solution. And guess what I just got for the very first time?!
