Eat seasonal with My Foodie Box

Start the year right with plenty of seasonal fruit and veg available through January, making those healthy eating resolutions a little bit easier. Choose between Cuban salsa bowl with creamy avocados, or peppered steak with ratatouille using crisp capsicums. Juicy tomatoes and overly sweet corn make a great filling for lamb quesadillas, while raspberries and bananas are the perfect snack to brighten up your days back in the office.

Australia has different climates within and between states which means we get some fruit and veggies all year round, how lucky are we! Seasonality refers to the times of year when the harvesting is at it’s peak. Although, supply of produce can be impacted by weather. Us here at My Foodie Box meal-kit delivery service Perth love supporting local farmers by creating our recipes based on what’s currently in season. We source, we prepare and we deliver so that you can spend your time doing what you love instead! We have prepared some amazing recipes with seasonal produce for you to try this week.
