Some Thoughts on Impeachment and Resistance

Where have I been and why haven’t I posted in months? I ask myself that regularly. All good on this end. I appreciate readers who said they missed my posts. Both people. And one, frankly, was my mother.

At any rate, I’m back and talking impeachment.

Well, really just the PEACH part. Doesn’t a great, ripe, juicy peach sound delicious? You’re thinking vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, fiber, no fat…or perhaps that beautiful scent and sun-kissed perfect peach color.¬† Yet, one must resist. It’s not the season and won’t be in the US for another five months.

There are many reasons to stick with seasonal eating. The produce is unquestionably tastier but it’s an environmental savings too.

Eating with the season ensures you will have variety in your diet which is one of three key components of a healthy diet; plus you’ll enjoy a cost savings. Browse the produce department and see what looks great – that’s what is in season. Produce that looks like it should!

While it’s admirable to go to the market with a list, in the produce section, you should probably think on your feet. Your list might say “Buy 2 Veggies” and once there you can decide what looks best. Price is often a great clue.

I bought some apples the other day knowing full well they were likely picked last fall and stored. Eating out of hand was out of the question; the moisture and crispness was lacking. I missed the crunch that an autumnal apple provides. A fine reminder of seasonal eating.

Buy smart, buy seasonal to be well,

PS Moderation and balance are the other two components of a healthy diet.

PPS Apples went into a delish dessert  Рan apple cake with ice cream and caramel run sauce Рneed I say more?
