Sometimes the simplest way to plan a meal is to use what's fresh and in season. During the spring months, grocery stores are full of farm fresh vegetables that are at the peak of flavor. There's a lot to choose from and because most of them are in great abundance, they also come at a good price.
For a simple meal, try planning around any of these springtime seasonal vegetables:
Asparagus - Grilled, in a salad, or in risotto
Cucumber - In sandwiches, in salads, on their own with hummus as a snack
Celery - in soups, with a peanut butter for a protein pick me up
Mushrooms - Stuffed or sauteed
Corn - Roasted on the cob or by the kernel
Avocados - In tacos, as a salad topper, or in an omlette
Moms, how do you plan your meals for the week so that dinner time goes smoothly?
