Healthy Through the Seasons

As a healthy lifestyle food company, Bex Kitchen knows that nutritious food is important to overall well-being and is a vital part of health and wellness. Now that Summer is over and we have shifted into Autumn, our diets need to change with the season to keep in natural rhythm with life and stay in balance. Our bodies require different nutritional needs with each changing season and eating in harmony with the seasons ensures proper nutrition for optimal health. As we adjust to colder temperatures and more days indoors, our dishes reflect more comforting, nourishing and immune- boosting foods with the use of root vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and dark leafy greens. As our dietary needs change with the seasons, so does our seasonal menu at Bex Kitchen. We utilize restorative foods in our Autumn recipes such as: pumpkin and winter squash for their carbohydrates and sustenance, whole grains and root vegetables for their antioxidant and nutrient dense qualities and fall greens for their phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are powerful antioxidants derived from fruits and vegetables that promote overall health. 

Eating in season provides numerous benefits including; access to fresher, more nutritious food, reducing your carbon footprint, and supporting a sustainable, local-centric lifestyle. Seasonal food is allowed to ripen naturally on the vine, and is picked at the peak of freshness, thereby retaining more of the naturally-occurring vitamins and minerals and making it better for you. Local food does not require long transportation to get to your plate, which reduces greenhouse gasses and fossil fuels, which is better for the environment. Supporting local farms helps maintain open space and stimulates the local economy by providing jobs and keeping money in the community. Adopt a healthy lifestyle today by eating in season and choosing a catering company that reflects your healthy lifestyle.
