“I have to admit, I’m one of those people that’s infatuated with Avocados. I didn’t realize how much I loved them until I moved to California- and the beauty of it is, they’re always in season!! Avocados are always a part of my daily meals- I slice them and toss them on my salads, eat them on toast, but my favorite which is oh so simple- is to scoop it straight from the shell! I cut the avocado in half, drizzle olive or grape seed oil and dash sea salt & pepper on top and Voila, a perfect protein and good-fat packed snack!
 
“I love all veggies, yet in the Spring I tend to eat a lot of cabbage. I love cabbage because it’s filing, delicious both raw and cooked, and it can be made so many different ways. I often add it to soups, to stir-fries, or just chop it up instead of lettuce for a gratifying and crispy textured salad!”

“As we move into Spring and refresh from winter my favorite fruit and veggie this season are apricots and broccoli. I love apricots in salads, in fresh juices and I also love to put them in my oatmeal. Broccoli is my all time favorite food so I love to eat it everywhere but in particular in salads and I love to chop it up with quinoa. Apricots and broccoli are a great source of potassium and fiber.”

“Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been drawn to fennel at the farmers market.  My husband loves to make a salad with fennel, avocado and grapefruit- tons of lemon juice.  I love fennel in my smoothies.  On a cool spring evening i caramelize it with onion and mushroom for a quick pasta sauce.  It’s great for digestion and aids in our internal spring cleaning.  We save the fennel prongs, which one would otherwise discard, in order to make tea.  A stalk goes right into your tea cup along with boiling water.  Let it sit for a while, add a slice of fresh ginger or ginger powder and you have my favorite nightcap.”

“I enjoy asparagus all year round but the freshest and crispest bunch come in the Spring. I simply toss them in a pan with either coconut oil or olive oil, sprinkle some sea salt and coarse black pepper and they are good to go. For fruits, I obsess over apricots, mangoes, and pineapples. They are all so delicious, juicy, and burst with flavor. I love pineapples in my smoothies or as is with a tad of sea salt. I love mangoes in smoothies, salads, and as is. And apricots is a must in my salads or a quick snack! My mouth is watering anticipating these amazing Spring foods!!”
