Seasonal Recipes: Ways to Use Fresh April Produce

Try mixing healthy seasonal produce into foods you already enjoy! Aim for 3-5 servings of seasonal fruits and veggies every day. If you don’t have the time to re-stock, buy fresh produce items in bulk and freeze immediately to maintain nutrients.

Here’s a list of fresh foods to pick up at your local supermarket:

  • Asparagus
  • Avocados
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Citrus fruits (oranges, grapefruit, lemon)
  • Leafy greens (kale, spinach)
  • Mushrooms
  • Peas
  • Sweet Potatoes

I enjoy chopping up asparagus, broccoli and mushrooms to add to an omelet. Sometimes, I’ll spread tomato sauce over a pita, add chopped veggies with a little bit of cheese, and bake it in the oven (400 degrees for 8-10 min.) for a healthy, single-serve pizza.
