One of our biggest passions here at Eat Like No One Else is seasonal eating. Which is why we are excited to announce our eCookBook dedicated to eating by the season (sign up for our email list below to receive your FREE copy)
Why Seasonal Eating?
We think the best tasting foods are those that are in season. Makes sense, right? These are the foods that are grown, packed, and shipped at for optimal flavor.
We do live in a world that you can pretty much get everything year round with some exceptions here and there (more on the exceptions in a moment). Because of that, it seems everything is always in season. Not true, which is why on this blog, we spend time talking about what's in season, such as our super popular - When are Peaches in Season post?
Seasonal Eating is Cheaper
When you buy what's in season, it is often cheaper. For example, when you have to import blueberries from other parts of the world, there is going to be an expense attached. When you buy blueberries grown right down the road, you don't need to pay all the blueberries' traveling costs.
The Exceptions Make Life Fun!
Remember when I said some exceptions? It's those exceptions that you can't get year round that make eating seasonally more fun and exciting. For example, ramps are only available for a short time in the spring. I have so much fun using them in ingredients when they are here.
Not being around all the time, makes them special. And for me, I choose to only buy certain foods only certain times of year so that they are more special and I am enjoying them only at their peak. Asparagus is one of the biggest examples. It's around everyday at the grocery store, but it's not that good unless it's late winter or spring time.

My Favorite Book for Seasonal Eating
One book that has taught me a lot about enjoying what's in season and just about fruits & vegetables in general is "How to Pick a Peach" by Russ Parsons. It does an excellent job of laying out information on all the common fruits and vegetables, how to choose them, which includes information on when they are in season.
