“Seasonal Aspects of Nutrition” with Leika Suzumura

Incorporating local, seasonal foods into our diets can connect our bodies with our environment, culture, and regional food system.  Learn practical tips to help bring more seasonal foods into your diet, and why it makes sense to eat more salads in the summertime and spices in the winter months. 

Leika Suzumura, R.D., has been cooking and studying nutrition since the age of 13. She received her undergraduate degree in nutrition at Bastyr University, and is passionate about food justice and the pursuit of making quality foods accessible to all people. Her strategy is founded on community networks and empowering people with the knowledge and skills necessary to take charge of their health for the greatest quality of life.
