July Seasonal Foods

Seasonal foods let us enjoy their best flavor and scent thanks to their optimal maturity. Harvested at their peak, the amount of these goods increases; and therefore, the price of seasonal foods decreases. In order to have a balanced diet, it is essential to eat a variety of foods to supply us with the necessary energy, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, vitamins, and minerals. The daily consumption of fruits and vegetables is below the generally recommended; thus, we suggest you to eat more of the following July seasonal foods.

As well as fine fish such as bonito, scorpionfish, sardine, turbot and hake (July is the last month to enjoy the best hakes).
