April: seasonal food

06-04-2021

With the arrival of April, a super special season begins and that in addition to being full of colors and aromas, marks the beginning of good weather.

In addition to gradually enjoying a warmer climate, the days are also getting longer, and personally we love it, since the day lasts much longer if at the end of classes or work, you still have a few moments of sun. Some people prefer wintertime, but we are fans of summertime and its long sunny days.

Likewise, spring is a time when most vegetation begins to gain strength after the harsh winter, and we can see super colorful landscapes full of a wide variety of flowers and plants of all kinds. The same happens with vegetables, vegetables, and fruits, since many of them find at this time of year, the ideal time to grow. Also, we can find tasty meat and fish that belong to this season, being able to access these at more competitive prices and enjoy all their flavor. Do you want to know which are our favorite foods of the month of April? Keep reading!
