Spring Greens

Friday, March 30, 2012
bagHave you heard of a CSA? That stands for "Community-Supported Agriculture" and it's basically a subscription to a local farm. Every week I get a box of whatever produce is ready for harvest at that time. It's a good time of year to check out what CSA's might be in your area, and one place to do that is LocalHarvest.org.

At this time of year, it's greens galore (and asparagus - yum)! This is great, because not only are greens superior sources of a vast array of nutrients (check out the nutrients in, for example, chard), but I find that eating a lot of greens helps to keep my fasting blood glucose lower (I'm pre-diabetic).
