Eating for the Season: Seasonality Chart

Awesome illustration from the UK Guardian Newspaper

These colorful illustrations of information fascinate me. This chart from the Guardian is another great example of an artistic way to get a message across. Eating with the seasons is a commitment to the environment and it begins with awareness.

Slate has an article on-line call Sustainable Salads, by Brendan Borrell, that details which fruits and vegetable have the most modest environmental footprint.

It’s a wise choice to shop where you can determine the origin of the produce you purchase and to keep in mind how far it has come to get to your plate.
