The first day of spring is right around the corner and I know I’m not the only one ready for warmer weather and longer days – hello sunshine! I’ve put together a list of 5 of my favorite recipes that use fresh spring ingredients. These recipes will leave you feeling great and help get your body ready for warmer weather as summer inches closer and closer.
|1. Creamy Peach Delight
Peaches, banana, protein powder and yogurt combine to make this creamy smoothie taste like a special treat. Simply add all the ingredients in a blender and blend!
| 2. Steamed Halibut in Ginger and Tumeric
Not only is this dish gorgeous, but it has real health benefits too. The ingredients in this dish will boost the immune system and support digestion. Turmeric is the spice that gives curry its yellow color and it is one of my favorite ingredients to cook with being rich in iron, zinc, and B vitamins. You will use parchment paper to steam the fish, but don’t be intimidated! It is a simple method of cooking and the end result is perfection when it comes to fish!

Add a little Middle Eastern flair to your next burger with this grilled chicken burger. The Sumac sauce is to die for and adds the perfect finishing touch to this tasty burger. Get your grill ready – it’s almost grilling season!
