Spring is here—and that means we can finally say good-bye to root vegetables and winter squash and welcome back fresh artichokes and asparagus and peas!

I kind of think it’s a misconception that vegetarian meals cost more money than ones made with meat. Lentils, chickpeas, and other beans are all really affordable sources of protein! For things like quinoa and nuts, I try to buy them in bulk unless they’re on sale. I think it’s really the faux meats that can start to get pricey, but I avoid those in my cooking.

I think I’m just going to plant a few things in my raised beds this year. I don’t want to over-commit myself. 🙂 I should send you some of my freaky white strawberry plants! They have totally taken over half of my herb garden.

if you like it sweet, you can clean the rhubarb, cut it and then cook it with some sugar (depending on how sour or sweet you like it), let it cook until it’s a nice mush. you can add a mashed banana (you won’t really taste it, don’t worry), this prevents your teeth from getting this weird rhubarb feeling 😉
it goes with vanilla ice cream or vanilla sauce.

or you could use it instead of apples on a simple pie.

Totally following your spring eats pinterest board. I’m so sick of root veggies and cabbage but it’s almost like I forgot how to cook things that don’t need to be boiled or baked to within an inch of their lives! This will be my savior.

The best part of spring is the produce and so I love celebrating by eating it! ALL OF IT. Plus, I just got the.boy to eat artichokes this week without gagging! So you know i’ll be making them nonstop. Love this inspiration!

I love artichoke hearts, but I’m still not on board with whole artichokes. Because there’s nothing to eat on them! I want to like them because they’re pretty (they were in my wedding bouquet! is that weird?!), but I haven’t been convinced yet.
