There are many benefits to eating seasonally, not least that seasonal produce is a real culinary treat for the tastebuds. By enjoying produce when it is in season, we fall in with Mother Nature's natural, and intended, culinary calendar!

As a Registered Nutritionist, you'd probably think I was into this. That I should be congratulating these charities for getting us to eat healthier while raising cold hard cash for a good cause and moving the dial farther than 5-a-day ever did (side note: 5-a-day team; maybe if people could raise money...no?
