spring has sprung (finally!)

It's finally spring! After all the snow we've had this year, I was wondering if it was ever going to happen! It also gives me the perfect opportunity to talk about seasonal food....

Eating with the seasons is awesome for so many reasons. Firstly, and most importantly, it's sustainable. Food that's in season is local and doesn't have to be shipped in from half way across the world, and it hasn't been grown in hot houses- the process uses as little energy as possible. Secondly, it's what you want to eat! No one comes in after a day in the freezing cold and thinks, ooh you know what I fancy? Salad. No. Just no. Thirdly, it's so exciting to have a changing diet. There is always something new coming into season next month  and it's always worth waiting for (I'm thinking strawberries in summer, squashes in autumn etc.)

So here is a list of the best spring foods!

Cucmber, new potatoes, spinach, spring greens, spring onions (the name kinda gives it away huh?), watercress, ASPARAGUS! purple sprouting broccoli and cauliflower.
