As we welcome in spring in the northern hemisphere, make sure you welcome in some seasonal produce that grows locally during the months of March, April and May. Here are 8 spring fruits and vegetables that you should be stocking in my pantry this spring.
This is a light sweet green juice, great for anyone wanting to ease themselves into the stronger green juices. Add more fennel if you desire the light aniseed flavour with less of the pineapple for a less sweet tasting juice. Find out what ingredient is hidden in the recipe that you will never even taste!
When you need an easy but healthy dinner, try this salad. It’s delicious and creamy, and makes for a great way to enjoy those nutrient-packed dark green leafy vegetables and other healthy produce. Try using the delicious dressing as a dip with any combination of your favorite vegetables! It can even be used as a dipping sauce, too. Get the recipe!
This tangy juice is loaded with flavor and nutrients. The fennel along with the ginger adds digestive and immune-boosting properties, and the carrots and peppers add electrolytes that can aid with hydration pre- or post-exercise. This juice is light, refreshing, and is lower in sugar, which makes it a good choice for people with pre-diabetes/diabetes or simply for those looking for a lower-sugar juice option.
This morning I juiced up some of fall’s best crops fresh from my local CSA farm share. The large radishes looked like beets (beetroot), but when cutting into them, their peppery yet light smell and white interior let me know… this is not a beet!
