With all this talk about self medicating with herbal remedies and out of season imported fad foods, how about enjoying the wonderful variety of UK fruit and veg? I'm sure currently available brassicas must be good for you and we've got the whole of the the summer to eat anti oxidising soft fruit and even English sour cherries! If you want vitamin C then leave the peel on your early potatoes. Grow some parsley or basil on your windowsill or have fun sprouting a few beans in a jar. In the autumn eat edible berries from the hedgerows. Nutritional science says that a wide variety of food is best for us. Eat locally and in season and we will do that enjoyably and cheaply. Perhaps we will see more cherry trees in blossom as well?
