Spring fruits and vegetables

-A A +A
By Melissa Hight, County Extension

Spring is a time for growth and renewal. During this time, you may actually find your body naturally wants to eat light and refreshing foods. Many of the tender greens and produce that are in season during the spring are flavorful when cooked  quickly. During the warmer months, food is best prepared by steaming, searing, light stir-fry, sauté and a quick broil. This way they retain the most nutrients and are a bit easier to digest. Eating cool foods in the warm weather and warm foods in the cold months helps to create a balance for a healthy diet.
