Why choose fresh seasonal vegetables

The reasons for choosing fresh seasonal vegetables are many and they are important both for us, for our well-being, for our wallet but also for the health of the planet.
The first advantage, material but not to be overlooked, is that seasonal products cost less and, since vegetables may not normally be too cheap, this is not an aspect to be underestimated. The reason for this savings is that non-seasonal vegetables need greenhouses and a lot of energy to grow and mature, which significantly increases production costs, which are then reflected in the price of the product. But the advantages are not only economic: fresh seasonal vegetables, cultivated following their normal life cycle, with fresh air and sun, are richer in nutrients and active ingredients and are suitable, in terms of taste and calorie intake, for the period of &' year during which it grows naturally. Not only that, seasonal vegetables taste better! Ripening in the sun under the right conditions for each different vegetable, allows the product to be enriched with all those nutrients that give it character and fragrance, since the development of the plant takes place in the right way.
Also, perhaps you don't know that, since plants grown in seasons other than theirs are weaker, a greater amount of pesticides are used to protect them, which is not good for our body or for the planet. But the real damage to this paragraph' the last is the environmental cost of certain products, such as peppers and zucchini for which, to make them available in winter, large heated and illuminated greenhouses are needed, which use a lot of energy. This paragraph' the latter often comes from non-renewable and polluting sources, to which synthetic pesticides and fertilizers must be added, therefore derived from petroleum. For these reasons, eating fresh seasonal vegetables improves your well-being and the condition of the &' environment


Fresh vegetables: better cooked or raw?

Fresh vegetables, both cooked and raw, are certainly rich in nutrients. To decide how to prepare your favorite vegetables, you have to pay attention to the type of cooking and the type of vegetable that we are going to prepare. For example, even if baking or grilling can be very tasty, it does not keep all the properties of the food intact, as does quick steam cooking. On the contrary, steaming, breaking the cellulose fibers, makes certain vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower and eggplants, more digestible, not to be allowed to cook for too long, in order to maintain their nutritional properties. A &' high category of vegetables preferably cooked to eat are those that contain carotenoids and vitamin A, such as carrots, squash, and bell peppers.
On the other hand, the various types of lettuce, arugula, celery, cucumbers and fennel should be consumed strictly raw, so as not to lose l&' supply of vitamin C and the mineral salts they contain, such as calcium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus. Finally, certain vegetables, already digestible when raw and not penalized by fast cooking, can be eaten in both ways. This is the case of zucchini, asparagus, spinach, fennel, chicory, tomatoes and even broccoli
