Seasonal ingredients have more nutrients + flavor: 

Native corn has phosphorus & niacin to support your body with critical functions. Eat corn when it is in season from a local farm that confirms they plant non-GMO corn. We can also mindfully thank cauliflower for giving your body vitamin C that supports the body’s muscles, bones + immune system. 


Carrots are amazing root vegetables with beta-carotene, vitamin A + C. Don’t forget to try all the different varieties.
