Health Tip: Spring Into Health With Seasonal Foods

Dine on these springtime favorites

(HealthDay News) -- Spring abounds with fresh seasonal foods, so why not serve them to your family and friends?

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends:

  • Serving up some fresh spinach, which is loaded with vitamins and minerals. Use it as a salad base or a sauted side dish, or add to sauces or soups.
  • Dish up calcium-rich yogurt layered with fresh seasonal fruit and cereal.
  • Fresh strawberries are abundant during spring. Serve these nutritional powerhouses sliced on top of cereal or yogurt, or pureed as a smoothie.
  • Asparagus spears are rich in folate, vitamins A and K, and iron. Roll them in Panko crumbs and egg, and bake into a crispy treat.
