Kicking off March, and our entry into spring, let’s talk about all the new shit that will be in season and what should be on your grocery list! As the seasons change more produce becomes readily available and the best part is that means it will all be much cheaper. This gives us a great opportunity to shake things up and introduce new items to our daily meals. Be sure to check out your local farmers market, they tend to have the best deals, and now more than ever we should support our local communities. Don’t worry if there aren't any near you, most grocery stores and big-box chains will have all the goods too. Check out the list below and a few recipe ideas to get you started.
Artichokes - Low in fat, high in fiber, and delicious AF on pizza, in salads, and my personal favorite, as a dip. Check out this recipe from our friends at Allrecipes.com for Spinach & Artichoke dip that will change your life.
Brussels Sprouts - These tend to be a bit less desirable in taste for most people but there are a bunch of ways to upgrade them. Shaving them down into a salad takes away some of the bitter green taste but if you really want to take it up a notch, add bacon! Bacon and brussel sprouts somehow pair perfectly.
Leeks - Leeks are basically onions cuter cousin. They are sweeter and more subtle and make for a great replacement in recipes that call for building flavors. Try this recipe for risotto from Epicurious.
Mushrooms - Never to be ignored, our fungus friend the mushroom can be used as a dose of earthy flavor or act as a great substitute for protein. Mushrooms can range from rich and meaty to smokey and full-bodied which means there is an endless amount of flavor depending on which you choose. I recommend making one of these recipes for dinner tonight.
Parsnips - Speaking of cousins, parsnips are a root vegetable that’s closely related to the carrot. It’s similarly sweet but tastes more like cinnamon or nutmeg and can be used in place of carrot recipes to add a kick of spice. Check out this Root Veggie Gratin recipe and swap the carrot for parsnip.
Pineapples - Aside from the “oh so good” sweet taste of pineapples they’re loaded with nutrients and can help ease digestion. One of my favorite things to do is to top a grilled chicken sandwich with a slice of pineapple for a sweet and savory combo that is tasty AF. Try it for yourself.
Stay Healthy & Enjoy
