In Season Vegan: July

 

It’s July! I genuinely can’t believe it is July already. I know I say this every year, but time is just flying lately. My guess is you say that too! 🙂

 

July is usually the month where the sun truly comes out to greet us. Summer is when we meet up with friends, have far too much to drink and leave our worries behind.

Why you should be eating the seasons.

 

When food isn’t in season, it has to be forced in energy guzzling hothouses or shipped in from overseas. This isn’t only bad for our planet: the fruit and veg taste best when they are at their natural peak. It is widely believed that fruit and veg that is in season retains more of its nutritional value as it hasn’t spent weeks being transported across the globe.

 


In short: it tastes better, it’s better for our planet, it’s better for our bodies… and guess what? It’s often better for our wallets too.

The best vegan recipes that are in season in July.

 

This month I’m going to spend as much time as possible outside, and my choices are going to reflect that need for al-fresco eating.

  • Lazy Cat Kitchen brings us these delicious zucchini (courgette) fritters which are a great finger food for small hands!
  • A watermelon and strawberry smoothie would be a surefire way to get my fruit-hating son Shane to get some extra fibre in his diet.
  • Salsa is one of the simplest things to make at home, but many people overlook this for storebought. Once you figure out this basic recipe, there are all sorts of customisations you can try!
