Fruits and Veggies Perfect for Spring

June is declared the National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month! Proper consumption of each of these means living a better, longer life. Each type of fruit or vegetable is packed with vitamin goodness that strengthens your body and gives you real energy for the day ahead.

Springtime is one of the best times to start eating them in plenty again. Some of the most delicious varieties are in season right now.


Who doesn’t love a good strawberry on a warm spring day? They are packed with sweet goodness that you have but to bite in to for addiction to set in. The best thing is, they work as an excellent snack (by themselves) and an even better dessert (with whipped cream).


Luscious mangoes are in season right now. They’re sweet, soft, and amazing. They’re wonderful treats by themselves, but it doesn’t hurt to find excuses to add them into everything. They’ll not only taste good, but can help you clear up bad skin, help your eyes, lower cholesterol, and can help improve digestion.


Rhubarb is coming into season. If you don’t like them by themselves, turn them into jam, or a pie. They are rarely as good as they are in spring. Grab a few and start working some jam and pie into your diet (how often do you hear that?)


Ever slowly worked your way slowly through a cooked artichoke before? Leaf by leaf you enjoy the succulent flavor of the artichoke until you arrive at its tasty center. Now’s the time to get the best artichokes of the year.


Asparagus is an easy-to-cook, cheap, and nutrient rich vegetable that just has to be steamed. It’s an excellent addition to almost any meal, and when cooked properly, it’s as soft as warm bread.

Springtime is the season to put the McDonald’s French fries aside and reach for the carton of strawberries. Bodies work so much better when they are filled with the proper amount of fruits and vegetables every day. Become a bit health conscious this spring and you’ll create a new, more healthy menu.
