With the weather warming up, now is the time to start our spring gardens and enjoy fresh produce! Eating fresh (and local!) ingredients in season is a great way to get the nutrients we need without sacrificing taste or variety. Although it can be difficult to remember when certain fruits or vegetables are in season, seasonalfoodguide.org is an easy way to check what is in season near you.
In Louisiana, strawberries, asparagus and mustard greens are in season and ready to enjoy now! Best of all, fresh produce is generally easy to find at local farmers markets and fruit stands for a very reasonable price. Why not experiment with a new recipe and “wow” your friends and family?
