Don’t Let the Season Stop Your Fun in the Kitchen
Many of you have gotten to know and love working with Attorney Megan Pastrana over the last few years as much as I have. She’s an amazingly talented attorney who cares deeply about her clients. I’m very happy to announce that, beginning on Jan. 1, Megan will become a partner of the firm. Together we have plans in 2020 to continue to modernize the firm’s technology, launch a podcast, and create an even better experience for all of our clients. Thanks to all of you for your support and a big congratulations to Megan!
If you do your best to eat seasonally, you’re not alone. In recent years, more and more people have embraced the idea of eating fresh, local produce that cycles throughout the year. Some choose the path for health reasons — studies have shown that organic fruits and vegetables, which are more common on small farms, have 20–40% more antioxidants than conventionally grown ones — while others want to decrease the carbon footprint of the food on their plates to help fight climate change. Regardless of the reason why, many have embraced this simple fact: The fresher produce is, the better it tastes! A tomato engineered to travel hundreds of miles to your dinner table just doesn’t pack the same flavor punch as one picked in your own backyard. In the spring, summer, and even the fall, eating seasonally is relatively easy. If you have access to a farmers market or local co-op, it’s no doubt bursting with fresh fruits and vegetables during the warmer months. Tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, salad greens, peaches, cherries, strawberries, blueberries — all of these tasty foods and more overflow in the spring and summer. Once fall arrives, an abundance of squash and apples shows up to complement the summer bounty. Winter, however, is another story. When the weather turns chilly, berries and delicate greens disappear, and produce in general seems scarce, which can make it feel impossible to eat seasonally.
