Spring

Pea and Pistachio Pesto

Ful-Filled

Spring is a beautiful time of the year when flowers start to grow and new plants crop up. The change in season brings us apricots, avocados, broccoli, and peas that are full of health benefits. For example, green peas are a great source of Vitamin K, B1, and C and are high in protein, magnesium, and iron.

As the weather begins to get warmer, there is an abundant amount of fresh fruits and vegetables that begin to appear, such as cucumber, cherries, and salads. A big bowl of leafy greens tastes better when you are able to enjoy the sunshine. Choosing locally sourced produce is not just good for your health but also great for the environment.

The colder the weather gets, the more we begin to crave heartier and more filling dishes. The season of root vegetables such as garlic, beets, leeks, squash, parsnips, and potatoes means our plates can be just as colorful in the winter as in the summer. Oh, and Christmas is on its way, which means we can perfect our roast potatoes once again!
