I can tell the season is changing by the foods I crave. Fresh greens. That's about it. I just want fresh greens--maybe lightly steamed but mostly raw. Specifically, asparagus and lettuce and peas and radishes and baby spinach. I'm thinking about fresh fava beans lately too (which I think are probably almost in town if not already here). It isn't that I wasn't eating greens all winter, but I'm so over kale and collards at this point. I want tender leaves!! Spring is most definitely here.
Funny how when you start to eat more seasonally, you start to crave seasonal things. Even funnier is how I thought this was all a load of crap just a few years ago. I'm trusting my body these days and if I want to spend my evening chewing leaves all night--well then that is what Imma do.
