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 winter crops include apples, brussels sprouts, and carrots.

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

No matter where you live, I think we can all agree that there is nothing better than a warming soup, stew, or chili in the winter! You’ll find all of those winter recipes and more here.
