FARM TO TABLE – SPRUCE UP YOUR SPRING DIET

Top 5 Food Items to Add to Your Spring Diet

Legumes
Beans are one of your best bets if you’re trying to drop pounds, says Joseph Colella, MD, a bariatric surgeon at Magee-Womens Hospital in Pittsburgh. “Your body has to work to break down the bean to get through the fiber,” he explains, “so you’re actually expending energy to digest it.”

Spinach
These tasty leaves are a great source of iron,(great asset for those who do not eat meat) which is a key component in red blood cells that fuel our muscles with oxygen for energy.

Artichokes
They’re loaded with magnesium, a mineral vital for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body—including generating energy, says Forrest Nielsen, PhD, a U.S. Department of Agriculture research nutritionist. “If you’re not getting enough magnesium, your muscles have to work harder to react and you tire more quickly.”

Strawberries
Strawberries can be a vital protection of your skin. They’re loaded with antioxidants that help your skin repair damage caused by environmental factors like pollution and UV rays. Also a good source of vitamin C

Spring Garlic
spring garlic has a milder, sweeter taste than the dried white bulbs you buy later in the season. Enjoy it diced on salad for a fat-fighting side or lunch.
