Welcome to Suppers in Season!
I’m Caroline, the writer and recipe creator behind Suppers in Season; a collection of everyday, easy recipes with a healthy focus, inspired by the seasons. I believe in the benefits of eating food that is in season. Food that is at its freshest, tastiest and most nutritious, and with the added bonus, at its cheapest! With the abundance of produce available all year round in supermarkets, it is sometimes hard to remember when produce is at its best, so I encourage you to think about the seasons and let them guide how you eat. Even if you do not have space to grow any of your own food, be guided by the items most abundant and full of vibrant colour in local farmers’ markets and shops.
My food is simple and generally healthy (with a few treats thrown in), with the emphasis on whole foods, and generally free from refined sugar. My recipes are meant for everyday cooks and food lovers like me. All the recipes are my own and as I am currently training as a Nutritional Therapist, I use my evolving knowledge to create healthy, nutritious dishes.
You will find a large number of my recipes are vegetarian, or easy to adapt, and often I give vegan options too. I gave up eating meat following a major health issue last year, and now eat a diet heavily focused on plant based foods. Whilst I eat some fish, eggs and a small amount of dairy, in many cases I use dairy free alternatives. If you find any recipes on here that are not dairy free/ vegan but would like help adapting, then do let me know.
Don’t get too caught up in the details and every ingredient. The recipes are inspiration as much as instruction. Try swapping the odd ingredient; sweet potato instead of parsnip, rice instead of quinoa. Play with herbs and spices, don’t worry if you don’t have every flavour every time. You may surprise yourself with something new!
Read, grow, cook and most of all, enjoy.
