These are some of my favorites!
Artichokes~ A favorite of my husband, who will eat them in pasta, dip and any other way you can imagine them! And a bonus, they are a good source of vitamin C, folate, magnesium and dietary fiber, while containing no fat!
Avocado~ Come on, we're from California, of course we love avocado...on pretty much anything! And did you know they pack 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid? Don't be fooled by their high fat content, as it is mostly unsaturated (the good kind!).
Strawberries~ I am absolutely giddy these are beginning to show their rosy little faces and will continue to grace us with their presence through late-summer! Packed with Vitamin C (even higher than some citrus fruit), folic acid, potassium and dietary fiber, strawberries are a fantastic sweet treat!
Asparugas~ my favorite way to enjoy asparugas is grilled with a squeeze of lemon juice. Of course I love that I can eat a lot because it is also low in calories, contains no cholesterol and is very low in sodium.
Apricots~ This small, delicate fruit is extremely versatile and deliciously tangy when ripe (closer to early May). In addition, they are one of the best sources of beta-carotene.
