Spring is in full effect! That means that there is an even wider range of delicious produce available in both our gourmet food market and our online gourmet food shop. While winter veggies like kale, turnips and potatoes are still in delicious form, the spring fare will brighten up your meals and bring even more variety to your meals.
Here are a few delicious produce items to be on the lookout for in our gourmet food market:
The omega-3 fatty acid-packed babies are healthy and filling, making them a perfect choice for those striving for a healthy diet and weight loss. They are at peak ripeness this time a year and are delicious whether you toss them in salads, whip them into guacamole or eat them whole.
Crunchy and full of texture, these cruciferous veggies are fresh and tasty during springtime. Plus, radishes are loaded with vitamin C, fiber and glucosinolates. Eat them raw, sauté them with other veggies or slice them into slivers and toss them into a salad.
This is the time that strawberries turn sweet, so take advantage and turn them into an antioxidant-rich dessert or snack.
If only this healthy veggie was in season for a much longer time! One of the healthiest vegetables around, asparagus boasts a bevy of anti-inflammatory nutrients and phytonutrients, including vitamins C and E, beta-carotene and minerals such as manganese, zinc and selenium. Grill them with steak, salmon or tuna, or boil them and drizzle with lemon and butter or olive oil.
Toss it into soup, risotto and pasta, cook it with your favorite lean protein, and season all your favorite dishes with seasonal garlic, which is as its most subtle flavor this time of year.
Whether you buy your produce in our Sacramento store or our online gourmet food market, you can always count on the freshest, most delicious spring produce.
