Speaking with Kacy from #fruitbaskets.net.au, we discovered that all fruit is not created equal and that there is still good reason to buy your fruit according to what is in season. Put simply, in season #freshfruit is most affordable, let alone being more flavoursome, more nutrient rich and available in abundance.
Kacy is not a big fan of following a recipe to the letter and using for example mango when it is not in season - using a similar type of fruit and adjusting your recipe to accommodate the shift in taste is far more efficient. Always remember to taste your recipe as you are preparing it and as you become familiar with the developing flavours you will also see what works and what can be improved upon.

So at this time of year it is important to keep in mind that your healthy eating should not diminish through scarcity - on the contrary - there is more fresh fruit available and ready for you right now than ever before. Just be mindful that you order fresh fruit hampers with this in mind! And good luck fighting off the cold this winter!
