Eat the seasons – June

June. Another month, another range of delicious food in season for us to taste and enjoy.

June is one of my favorite months as strawberries come into season and there really is nothing quite like the taste of fresh strawberries picked off the plant.

If want to find out more about the benefits of seasonal eating please check out last month’s post, Seasonal Eating – the benefits
