Good morning everyone, spring has sprung!
The coming of spring means that there is now more produce coming into season. Now in season: Artichoke, asparagus, beans, beetroot, berries, broad beans, broccoli, capsicums, carrot, cauliflower, chillies, cucumbers, grapefruits, leeks, lemons, lettuce, limes, mandarins (imperial), onions, parsley, parsnips, peas, potatoes, rhubarb, silverbeet, snow peas, spinach, spring onion, squash, strawberries, and zucchini.
The warmer weather is also a good opportunity to get some exercise outside. Exposure to sunlight is important to support vitamin D levels, and your levels may be slightly lower coming out of winter. Mornings and afternoons (when the UV level is lower) are the best time to get out for some sunshine while protecting your skin.
