4 Superfoods to Add to Your Plate this Spring
While spring is the time to clean out your home and refresh your wardrobe, it is also the perfect time to refresh your palate. The change in season brings warmer temperatures and flavors. If you are looking to give your winter superfoods a break, then we’ve got a list of four ingredients you can add to your menu this spring.
While turmeric is bold, strong, and ideal for summer, it is also a great flavor to introduce during the spring. Have you ever had golden tea or turmeric tea? The warm scent of turmeric is subtle enough to create a soothing and delicious tea without going overboard. Next time that you have a soup or broth recipe in mind, add a bit of turmeric. Scale back on your measurements in order to keep things light.
When fall rolls around beets are usually one of the first ingredients to make an appearance. While their deep burgundy hue and strong earthy taste are popular for autumn, beets are actually one of the foundations for a solid spring salad. Round up your favorite greens and add a bit of beet powder to a balsamic salad dressing.
While ripe bananas are the go-to food of choice for smoothie recipes, green bananas are an unripened and subdued version of the fruit. The powder works well for creating light and fluffy baked goods. Anything from cookies and cakes can benefit from an extra dose of green banana powder.
Mushrooms may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you imagine spring. Reishi is a favorite around here because it is one of the most popular and beneficial types of fungi available on the planet. The earthy scent is smooth and more subdued making it a great ingredient for teas and spring soups.
