It’s been a long winter, and we’re all embracing the sights, sounds and tastes of spring - especially in the kitchen. Whether you're an experienced home chef or just getting started with cooking, spring is the perfect time to visit your local farmers market for fresh healthy ingredients to incorporate into your own recipes and meals. Explore the many delicious and healthy seasonal vegetables to choose this spring and try something Nu — spark a cooking adventure!
Enjoying vegetables and fruits during their peak season has many benefits.
- Has more nutrients as it is harvested on the farm, to the market and on your table at its peak of freshness.
- Adds variety to your diet by cooking seasonally. It’s more fun and better for you so be creative and try something new!
- Is better for the environment as it travels shorter distances to reach you and is often sprayed with fewer pesticides.
- Supports local businesses and farmers. Buying locally grown seasonal produce at farmers markets, CSAs, and even your grocery store helps grow your local economy and helps support independent famers.
- Saves you money because there are fewer steps in the journey from the farm to your plate, meaning less overhead is added to the cost.
