The 5 E’s of Easy Healthy Eating
Evolve. Allow your food choices to evolve and expand by choosing local seasonal produce rather than highly processed food products. Local seasonal produce is higher in antioxidants and nutrients, which helps to build immunity and fight the effects of stress. In early spring, opt for fennel, garden peas, parsnips and snow peas; for mid-spring try asparagus, lettuce, radishes, rhubarb and spinach; and come late spring, seek out apricots, broccoli, cabbage, strawberries and summer squash.
