What do I do with…


A member of the lily family, these spears are surprisingly rich in protein compared to other vegetables. They are also an excellent source of potassium, vitamin K, folic acid, vitamins C and A, riboflavin, thiamin, and vitamin B6. Roast asparagus and drizzle with a little olive oil and salt, or steam and serve with lemon vinaigrette for a light salad. Incorporate asparagus in a variety of dishes, including pastas, stir-fry, omelets, and salads. Start with keeping it simple with oven roasted asparagus


A general rule-of-thumb is that the darker the lettuce, the greater the nutrient content. In general, all varieties are high in vitamin K, A, C, and folic acid. Spinach is known for its alkaline producing effects on the body, as well as its high lutein content, which promotes healthy vision. Try this spinach salad with dried cherries for a gentle transition into lighter spring fare.
