It’s Officially Spring!

Helllo SPring

Today is the first day of Spring and I want to offer some new recipes which will incorporate some of the vegetables that are at their best in the Spring!!!

What are Spring vegetables? Snow Peas, Asparagus, Leeks, Vidalia Onions, Broccoli, Endive, Fennel, Swiss Chard, Watercress, Butter Lettuce, Spinach, Red Leaf Lettuce and Green Beans

This simple, very healthy Chinese chicken salad recipe can be served warm or room temp during the week for a light lunch or dinner over mixed greens or a slice or two of pineapple! http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/chinese-chicken-salad-recipe?ref=amp

For a quick, healthy dinner that is so easy to clean up give this salmon recipe a try: http://culinaryginger.com/baked-salmon-spring-vegetables/

I also like the combined flavors of the simple yet sophisticated asparagus recipe here: http://www.eatwell101.com/good-asparagus-recipe

This healthy pizza recipe offers a nice opportunity to use more Spring vegetables— feel free to add any other veggies you enjoy! http://www.eatingwell.com/recipe/250443/spring-pizza/

And, as you know, healthy eating is only part of creating a healthy lifestyle. Ensure that you get at least 30 min of activity each day – preferably spend some time outside – and keep your bedtime consistent – maybe even try to get in bed 15-30 minutes earlier than usual.
