Spring—if not yet fully sprung—is certainly on its way toward springing. And whether your winter was mild or wild, we bet that the first shoots of green or bursting buds have you itching to head outside and get the season going in full swing. Then again, maybe they also make you want to stay inside and cook—in which case we suggest you greet the season with this Springtime Rice Salad.
March 17, as you may know, is St. Patrick’s Day. What you may not know is why it’s a tradition on that day to wear green. Legend has it that wearing green makes one invisible to leprechauns and other mischievous types—thus making it harder for them to pinch you. But we’d like to think that the color scheme is a tribute to spring and all the green goodies that come into season this time of year. So celebrate St. Paddy with these verdant recipes.
March is the perfect time to do some spring cleaning—of your diet. After all, this is National Nutrition Month. And while that may not sound as indulgent as National Ice Cream Month (wait for July), there’s no rule that says giving a healthy shine to your family’s meals has to be a drag. With so many flavorful fruits and veggies, hearty whole grains and savory lean meats and seafood to choose from, you may find yourself eating more healthfully year-round.
