Today’s NNM Tip: Add in a new fruit or vegetable each week! It can be something unusual and unique to your palate or even just something you haven’t had in a while.
Asparagus is in season and can be a delightful side simply steamed and served with lemon and garlic or used to serve up chopped in your salads and potato or rice dishes. Check out this tri-colored salad with steak. Get nutritional benefits of a variety of produce, including asparagus (FOTM April 2010) here.
Use this as a fun way to taste and explore the possibilities for your dishes and snacks. This will reduce the same old boring meals and liven ‘em up with new favors, color and textures that fruits and veggies can provide. So go ahead – mix it up – and enjoy a rainbow of epicurean delight!
