Seasonal nutrition: Fresh foods for spring + recipes

The arrival of spring brings with it a rebirth of nature and an explosion of colours and flavours in the world of food. It is the perfect time to enjoy the fresh, seasonal foods this season has to offer.

In this blog, we will explore some of the most nutritious and delicious spring foods, as well as healthy recipes to incorporate them into your diet.

Seasonal foods for spring:

1. Leafy greens: Spring is the ideal time to enjoy a variety of leafy greens, such as spinach, lettuce, chard and kale. These vegetables are loaded with vitamins and minerals, and are perfect for fresh salads or light stir-fries.

2. Asparagus: Asparagus is an iconic spring food. They are rich in fibre, antioxidants and vitamins, and can be enjoyed in many different ways, whether steamed, grilled or in a light soup.

3. Strawberries: Strawberries are another springtime treat not to be missed. They are an excellent source of vitamin C, antioxidants and fibre. Try adding them to your cereal, yoghurt or just enjoy them on their own as a healthy snack.

4. Carrots: Carrots are abundant in spring and are known for their high beta-carotene content, which is beneficial for skin and eye health. Use them in salads, soups or simply cut them into sticks for a nutritious snack.

Healthy recipes for spring:

1. Asparagus and strawberry salad: Combine chopped fresh asparagus, sliced strawberries, spinach leaves and chopped walnuts. Dress with a light balsamic vinaigrette dressing and enjoy a refreshing and nutritious salad.

2. Spring vegetable soup: Sauté seasonal vegetables such as peas, asparagus and carrots in a little olive oil. Add vegetable stock, fresh herbs and simmer until vegetables are tender. Serve hot with a dollop of crème fraîche if desired.

3. Spring green smoothie: Blend fresh spinach, kiwi, pineapple and a little almond milk in a blender until smooth and creamy. Add a handful of ice if you prefer it cooler. This smoothie is a delicious way to get a boost of vitamins and minerals.
