May is a great time to stock up on fresh, nutritious fruits and vegetables because as the days pass the shelves get filled with a good variety of produce. In Texas, some of the best produce that you can expect in farmers’ markets includes spinach, broccoli, and carrots.
Spinach is rich in vitamins and minerals, making it a great choice for salads or as a cooked vegetable side dish. Broccoli is another excellent source of vitamins and minerals, and can be enjoyed steamed, roasted, or stir-fried with an oriental sauce. Carrots are not only delicious but they're also packed with fiber and antioxidants. Enjoy them raw, shredded in a salad, or roasted as a healthy side dish or even juiced.
These vegetables and a number of others in season and organic produce are starting to make a comeback because of the season opening up to warmer months. This is why you need to start updating your grocery lists and make foresighted meal-plans for the coming weeks because the sheer variety of available ingredients for your more adventurous recipes are beginning to become available.
