Menu Plan for the Week of March 24: Spring Cleaning Our Diet

With the beginning of spring, I'm "spring cleaning" our family's diet. I'm replacing the heavy, stick-to-your-rib meals of winter with light, energizing, and flavorful seasonal fruits and vegetables. 

There's something invigorating about eating what's in season. Not only are you saving money because seasonal produce is cheap and on sale, but fresh fruits and vegetables picked and eaten in their prime mean a nutritional boon for you!

What's in Season Right Now

  • Artichokes
  • Arugula
  • Asparagus
  • Beets
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Chard & other greens  
  • Lemons
  • Lettuce
  • New potatoes
  • Peas & pea shoots
  • Radishes
  • Rhubarb
  • Spinach
  • Strawberries

My favorite place to shop for inexpensive seasonal produce is Aldi. This week asparagus, sugar snap peas, carrots, radishes, and lemons are on sale, and with the exception of radishes (which we don't like), we stocked up on spring goodies. 

Here's what's on our menu for the week:



  • Scrambled eggs, toast, & jam
  • Grilled cheese with vegetable soup
  • Easy herb roasted chicken, mashed sweet potatoes, & steamed green beans

  • Buttermilk biscuits, sausage, eggs, & grapefruit
  • Easter lunch at my grandmother's house
  • Supper at my parents' house

That's what we're eating this week. 

What's on your menu?

Blessings to you!
