Healthy Eating Tip: Try a New Type of Vegetable Each Week

Spending more time in your kitchen is good for your waistline and your wallet, and the abundance of delicious Spring vegetables gives us another reason to choose eating at home. Challenge your inner chef and get excited about eating healthy by experimenting with something new from the produce aisle each week.

Take advantage of in-season bounty by creating a watercress salad, steaming artichokes for snacking, roasting asparagus for a side dish, adding fennel to pasta, or swapping your romaine for mustard greens. Don't be intimidated by any unfamiliar offerings you may come across; there are plenty of resources online for learning how to cook every vegetable under the sun. Following through with this little challenge will help you eat more vegetables, and you may find yourself wanting to continue the weekly routine when next season rolls around.

I should definitely rotate more veggies into my diet. I sometimes get in a rut and stick to the same ones for a long time. Lately I've been trying different greens...arugula, leaf lettuce, chard, dandelion, etc. I should try some watercress at some point. I haven't had it in a long time and I remember it being very grassy tasting. I'd probably really like it if I ate it now.
