What to Eat this Spring (8 Fruits & Veggies to Try)

8 Spring Fruits and Vegs 420

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.

Fennel in the Sun Juice

Fennel in the Sun

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!

Kale Fennel Tahini Salad

Kale Tahini Salad

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!

Arugula Fennel Grapefruit + Pine Nuts Salad

Arugula Grapefruit Salad

Perhaps one of the most simple salads to make — and also one of the most beautiful and delicious. The bite of the arugula (rocket) is softened with a touch of olive oil and lemon, then sweetened with the grapefruit, then juxtaposed with the shaved fennel.

Fennel & Spice & Everything Nice Juice

Spice with Everything Nice

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.

Sweet n’ Tangy Juice

Sweet n Tangy Juice

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! Get the recipe and make your sweet and tangy juice today.

Celebration Grape Vino Juice

Celebration Grape Vino

Since today is my birthday, I was looking for a recipe that not only used up the cabbage but was a little festive too. I decided to take some cues from another festive beverage and go with grapes. I added a little fennel and apple, and the result is a lovely lilac juice. Get the recipe.

In the Reboot Kitchen: Warrior Princess Juice

Warrior Princess

This budget-friendly juice is perfect for many needs. It’s pretty enough and sweet enough for a 5 year old’s princess party and nutrient-dense enough to replenish a hardcore athlete. It’s full of vitamin C, antioxidants, electrolytes and potassium.
