The extra sunshine and warmer temperatures of spring bring with it a whole new host of foods to liven up your meal times. It’s so refreshing to see a new lineup of fruits, vegetables, and microgreens at the grocery store.
My absolute favorite springtime food is sugar snap peas. This colorful pea pod offers a wide range of nutrients like Vitamin C and fiber. Snap peas have a natural sweetness so they taste great as a healthy snack, or they can provide an added crunch to a green salad.
Asparagus is another nutritious springtime favorite for many people. It’s easy to prepare and it can be added to a variety of dishes. Other seasonal foods for March through June include arugula, rhubarb, strawberries, radishes and all varieties of sweet peas.
Don’t forget about morel mushrooms, chives, collard greens, fennel, spinach, and artichokes. Next time you’re at the store take advantage of the quality and freshness of springs seasonal produce.
