Hatch chiles are in season right now, which means we’re going to try and feature them as much as possible and this week, we have a roasted hatch green chile and onion stuffed organic chicken. Eating seasonally is beneficial for a number of reasons, but the healthiest reason to eat produce in season is you’re eating it while at its peak for vitamins and minerals. Peppers are really high in vitamin C and low in sugar, unlike oranges who usually get all the credit but contain a lot of sugar. Eating a hatch chile pepper will give you approximately 182% of your RDA of Vitamin C, as opposed to a metric cup of oranges, which gives you approximately 160% of your RDA of Vitamin C.
Gourmaleo features as much local and seasonal produce as possible. Incorporating this into a paleo diet benefits your health and the local farming community surrounding Dallas. Just another way we’re trying to make eating paleo better for you and better for the world.
