Succulent fruits that beckon warm, sunny days
 
Golden-colored peaches and nectarines please more than the palate, they also help your heart by providing nearly 25% of the daily recommended intake of potassium, a mineral important for maintaining healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
 
Enjoy whole as a snack, or halve and grill with balsamic vinegar, then sprinkle with crumbled blue cheese for sweet and savory snack or dessert!

A sure sign of spring is the reappearance of tender, Northwest-grown asparagus. This versatile veggie adds a bright flavor and subtle earthiness to many dishes. Perfect for quiche, tarts, risotto, flatbreads, pizzas and stir-fries, it also makes a simple side that’s quick and easy to prepare.
 
Trim ends, drizzle with olive oil and roast at 425 degrees with capers, lemon slices and a pinch of red pepper flakes for a punch of flavor.
 
Did you know: Asparagus is loaded with fiber, folate, copper, selenium, vitamins B, C, E and K.
 
 
Packed with nutrients and fantastic flavor, chard contains significant amounts of antioxidants and other phytonutrients that may help protect against heart disease, cancer and other diseases. It also helps boost your intake of calcium, vitamins C and K, fiber, folic acid, iron and potassium. Now that’s powerful!
 
Choose Red, Green or Rainbow.
 
Recipe: Sauté some onions and garlic, add chard leaves and cook until greens are softened for a simple side.
 
 
The folks at family-owned Rising C Ranches live among the groves where their oranges grow, and they limit the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides and insect control. 
 
They don't pluck their "old line" heirloom oranges at the first sign of maturity the way many growers do. They wait until the sugar increases and the fruit reaches optimum flavor for a much tastier, premium orange. 
 
Juicy, seedless and easy-to-peel, these heirloom navels are perfect for snacking. Toss one into your bag or slice and serve with breakfast.
 
 
Named by English explorers for its resemblance to a pinecone and its juicy apple-like center, the pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality for centuries. Rich in manganese, a trace mineral that promotes strong, healthy bones, this fantastic fruit is perfect for your holiday ham. Or use it to create an amazing pineapple upside-down cake. No matter how you slice it, this tropical treat is hard to beat. 
 
For a refreshing drink: In a blender, add pineapple, low-fat milk, a splash of coconut milk and a handful of ice cubes and puree until smooth. Enjoy!
