Before reading on

I’m not an expert in this field, but I am passionate about nutrition and health.

The articles you’ll find on my site are the result of in-depth research that I’d like to share with you. However, I would like to stress that I am not a health professional and that my advice should in no way replace that of a qualified physician. I’m here to guide you, but it’s important that you consult a professional for specific questions or medical concerns. Your well-being is important. So be sure to consult the appropriate experts and take the best possible care of yourself.

Why should you eat seasonal vegetables and fruits in autumn?

1- To benefit from their nutritional benefits:

Nature is well done: at the end of summer, as soon as the school year begins, our body is lacking nutrients and vitamin C. And that’s good!

Autumn vegetables are rich in minerals like leafy vegetables (spinach, sorrel, chard, fennel, etc.) which are rich in magnesium, potassium, iron, copper, and calcium, but also certain fruits. such as kiwi, rich in magnesium, citrus fruits, rich in calcium, bananas – rich in potassium.

Vitamins A, C, D and E are also found in certain autumn vegetables such as zucchini, pumpkin, pumpkin, leeks, etc.

Enough to have energy and concrete defenses!


2- Seasonal fruits and vegetables are tastier:

They have reached maturity naturally… and are therefore full of different flavors and full of nutritional benefits (unlike fruits which have ripened during transport, for example).

3- To support short-local circuits:

Everything is connected. By favoring fruits and vegetables that have not crossed the planet (or even the country), we reduce pollution, they have more vitality and taste, but we can also help support small local producers whether by purchasing directly from the farmer or by monitoring the origin of those purchased in supermarkets and limiting your carbon footprint.
