Savor Spring Vegetables

Posted on Apr 5, 2020


If you’re like most people, you don’t eat too many vegetables in your diet. You’re probably used to things like carrots and celery, but what about other vegetables you might try and incorporate into your daily diet? What about savoring spring vegetables this year? What are some of the veggies worth a try?

Artichokes are good for you. They have a lot of fiber, as well as potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus and other minerals. If you’ve been told you have liver issues, artichokes are the vegetables you want to eat more of, since they promote liver health. Meanwhile, they help lower blood sugar and improve digestion.

Another vegetable that begins with the letter “A” is asparagus. You can steam, grill or roast asparagus in the oven. Why bother? Well, asparagus is a superb supplier of Vitamin K and folate. Together, these things help your bones and cardiovascular system.

Here’s one that’s a bit off the beaten path… fennel. This spring vegetable has a licorice-like taste and is known as a great source of antioxidants. Add fennel to your diet to help reduce inflammation.

Have you considered mustard greens? Add these to your salad and you’ll be adding Vitamins K, A and C, all of which team up to fight free radicals and protect your cells against damage.

Do you like radishes but don’t eat them often? Why not make radishes your “new food” this spring, that you add to salads, soups and such? They’re full of Vitamin C and potassium, so radishes are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. They help promote kidney and blood health.

Finally, Vidalia onions are a savory springtime vegetable which help reduce respiratory ailments such as asthma. A low calorie food, Vidalia onions also contain flavonoids which are thought to protect against several types of cancer.

This spring, why not add some more vegetables to your daily meals? As you know, vegetables are so good for you– people just don’t eat enough of them these days. That said, if you want to be healthier, eat more vegetables!

By far the best chiropractor I’ve ever used. They customize a plan just for you and don’t use a one size fits all approach. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!! Thank you!!!

I have been experiencing low back pain for at least 10 rememberable years and decided on a whim to try chiropractic care at Lakewoods. I had never been to a chiropractor before so I had no expectations that it would work or not but after just my first adjustment I had instant relief for the first time in 10 years. I have since been super impressed with how everything has been explained to me and how my care plan has been formed. The staff are all very kind and have been very helpful as well!
