Three Super Foods for Spring

The sense of renewal that comes with spring can also extend to mealtime. Healthy foods can be quite tasty and reward you with energy and enjoyment. Here are just three of many great options for your next trip to the grocery store:

Asparagus – The spear of choice for delicious meals, it’s loaded with nutrients, including vitamins A, C, E and K, and is a source of fiber, folate, and antioxidants. It’s good roasted, grilled, or in stir-fry.

Strawberries – Just one serving has half of your daily recommended dose of vitamin C, making these a spring staple. You’ll also get other immune system boosters like lutein and the cancer-fighting ellagic acid.20160402_113035

Spinach – This green, leafy vegetable has always had a healthy reputation, and for good reason. It’s full of vitamin C, iron, vitamin B6, magnesium, and potassium.
