Eat the Seasons - Summer Spotlight

By Patricia Romero from Heal Collective

In Heal Collective’s ‘Eat the seasons’ series, we highlight the best fruits and vegetables in season in the UK.

For us at Dosage and Heal Collective, we find it important to eat food that is in-season, organic and locally sourced if possible. Our goal is to have our food reflect nature and to have our bodies be in sync with our surroundings.

Spotlight on Summer

August is the height of summer in the UK and produce is at its most abundant. Among the masses of berries that we all know and love are other British varieties of vegetables, herbs and fruits that can sometimes be overlooked. Here are some of our favourites that are in season right now.
