Eat your Vegetables: 5 of the Best Spring Green (or not!) Products

It’s ‘Eat your vegetables Day’, so what would be more appropriate for today’s post than giving veggies a little respect, huh!? The fact that you’re here, dear friend, means that you are too smart to read over and over again why vegetables are so important for us. You must be aware of that already! Of course, you probably also know that each season requires its specific kind of products and we should try sticking to this. So, we’re jumping right into the topic… Here are 5 of the best spring vegetables to celebrate Eat Your Vegetables Day:
  1. Beetroot
It’s true that you can find beetroot all year long, but spring is definitely the best time to use it. You can put it into warm or cold salads and even in soups! In case you’ve tried this red veggie, you probably know that it has a very specific taste that is not to be mistaken. What you should also keep in mind is that it’s also super healthy. Not only is beetroot going to make your salad quite interesting in terms of taste, but it will also give it a pinch of ‘healthy freshness’. That’s because the vegetable is said to be very rich in antioxidants, iron, calcium and magnesium.
  1. Green beans
Whether flat or round, green beans are always a choice both in spring and in summer. To be honest, people often underestimate the properties of this vegetable maybe because it doesn’t seem as exotic as some of the others. However, green beans can actually be a great source of vitamins from the B group as well as of vitamin K and manganese. Any researcher would confirm that green beans are rich in antioxidants like lutein, beta carotene, etc.
  1. Peas
Green peas’ season often starts in the beginning or the middle of spring. These little green balls are thought to be full of folic acid, which makes them perfect for women who are ready for “the next step”. What’s more, peas also contain vitamins A, C and K. However, there are also yellow peas that are super delicious and healthy just like their green fellas. In case you are curious to learn more about them, check this article out! green vs yellow peas
  1. Okra
You are a vegetarian? This green product will most likely increase your levels of folic acid and vitamin B! Of course, the list doesn’t end up here! Okra also contains big amounts of vitamins A and C as well as iron, calcium and magnesium. So, this is enough to think of okra as the perfect choice for the warm spring days, right?!
  1. Spinach
That’s one of the most universal leafy greens, we would say! Whether as a vitamin smoothie bomb or in your salad or rice, spinach always great. Thanks to its amazing properties, you will most probably get enough beta carotene, vitamins C and E and (of course!) iron. Let’s not forget about Poppye the sailorman with the huge amounts of spinach that he likes to eat in order to be strong! Here’s an article concerning some curious facts about spinach itself that you might wanna know. So, which veggie is your most favorite?
