MARCH: In Season

What the hell is growing in March? Apparently there are several things that you can buy (or grow) in season even in March.

Now I know that we live in modern America and we can literally get anything we desire because we import fruits and vegetables from other countries that are in summer when we are in winter. is my firm belief that it's better to eat in season as much as possible. Here's what is available in March:
  • broccoli
  • lettuce
  • cabbage
  • mushrooms
  • pineapple
  • mango
  • oranges
You would have to be pretty crafty to be able to come up with a month's worth of recipes that used nothing but  the 7 items above. But that isn't necessary.  As long as you can incorporate these in more then you are on the right track. And don't worry about trying to eat the veggies 100% raw. If you are still at the stage where you like your food cooked then that's what you should do: eat cooked veggies!

I always say it's more important to get vegetables into your mouth than to worry about whether they are cooked. If you are eating a salad, make it taste good by loading on the dressing if that is the only way you will get the in your mouth. The only unacceptable way to eat vegetables is fried- sorry french fries don't count! Neither does vegetable tempura (although it is soooo tasty!)

What's your fave way to eat vegetables? Or do you absolutely despise them?
