Meatless Monday Challenge


As an environmental scientist, I always try to eat things that are in season. Eating seasonally is one of the best (and most delicious) ways to support local and decrease your carbon footprint.

Local foods have less associated transportation costs and fuel emissions, and produce that is in season is less likely to require harmful fertilizers and pesticides to thrive.

Some of my favorite fall crops include pumpkin, sweet potato, and pear.

Still, seasonality can differ largely depending on where you live. Check exactly what is in season during autumn in your area with this Seasonal Food Guide.

But Fall doesn’t only bring delicious produce, but it also brings Thanksgiving and some of my favorite food traditions like apple pie, and green bean and sweet potato casseroles.

You’ll find all of our favorite Fall recipes here. Bring on the pumpkin spice!
