You can better plan your meals around what’s in season with the seasonal produce guide available from Natural Resources Defense Council.
With Spring at our doorstep, we here in the northeast can look forward to seasonal arugula, asparagus, beets, cabbage, carrots, herbs, lettuce, mint, morels, mushrooms, nettles, oysters, parsnips, pea greens, potatoes, radishes, rhubarb, scallions, and spinach.
Eating seasonally is a great reason to try new foods. Recipe sites Allrecipes, Epicurious, The Food Network, and Cooking Light all offer recipes by season. Martha Stewart's Seasonal Produce Recipe Guide, in addition to offering seasonal recipes, lets you know what produce is in season, what to look for when selecting a particular type of produce, and how it should be stored.
Try eating seasonally this Spring. Your taste buds, wallet, and planet will thank you!
