After months of gloomy days, torrential rain and blustery weather (and, for me, not nearly enough snow!), March has finally arrived 🙌. And as winter turns to spring, a whole new range of fresh fruits and vegetables are bursting onto supermarket shelves to mix up your mealtimes.
Filling up on seasonal produce is guaranteed to freshen up your slimming campaign – and because most fruits and veggies are Free Foods, you can enjoy as many as you like! As well as saving you plenty of pennies, adding what’s in season to your shopping list will transform your March menu into a vibrant, flavour-packed feast.
So take a spring stroll to your local market, supermarket or greengrocers and fill your basket with these seasonal sensations…
With the first shoots of spring starting to peek through the frost, we can finally wave a fond farewell to Brussels sprouts and welcome a fresh batch of gorgeous greens to liven up your dinners. Whether you’re serving a sizzling side of purple sprouting broccoli or sprinkling spring onions over your stir-fries, filling up on these Free veggies will see your weight loss blossom this month:
