Don’t ask me why, but spring is certainly the season I look forward to most. And her arrival makes me happy as I was still a child and had never smelled the scent of the first flowers or tasted sweet and juicy strawberries. Perhaps because spring offers you the chance to be reborn, just enough to breathe the new.
Since I was a mother all this seems to have doubled. Don’t believe it? Well, wait for your “mesenne” to start chattering and we’ll talk about it.
As I wrote for the autumn and winter calendars, consuming seasonal products is essential for a whole series of reasons: product quality, environmental sustainability, as well as economic savings. In spring it becomes even more important to cleanse and nourish the body after the colder months. And it is not difficult, given that the “vegetable” banks are a rainbow of colors and shapes.
For the baby, if the months allow it, buy fresh peas and asparagus tips, create combinations with baby courgettes and baby carrots and start offering something other than apples and pears, which have reigned for the winter.
