Spring has finally popped here in the Northeast and even if I couldn’t see the greenery outside my window, I would know it was time because I am down to the last few jars of tomatoes and peppers I jarred at the end of Summer 2010. Any day now, the earliest of crops will be ready for consumption heralding a return to the healthy, fresh eating of the warmer months. Strawberries, asparagus, ramps, radishes, and an array of baby greens are all just a few weeks away. In fact, we’re already starting to see them showing up in groceries and farmer’s markets.
As busy students, workers and parents, it can be hard to remember to eat well when we have so little time. Grabbing grub on the go often leads to poor dietary habits. This is especially true in Winter months when it is even more difficult and costly to find fresh, healthy snacks. So rejoice! Spring has sprung and the goodies will soon start to arrive.
