Imagine if your diet changed with the seasons. And it was out of your control. During the spring, you can only eat cheese pizza. That’s it. During the summer, you can eat pizza with any toppings you want. Finally, you have variety! During the fall, you can either eat mushroom pizza or pepperoni pizza. No more variety.
