On a scale of 1- stoked, how happy are YOU about these longer, warmer days?

Depending on where you live, maybe this past winter didn’t feel AS dreary and never-ending, but after one too many days of lots of rain and no sun, you can bet I am thrilled to be seeing sunshine and weather nearing 20C.

Spring means more chances to hike, spend time in nature, walk my dog Lucy (without freezing!) and enjoy beautiful BC to its fullest.

It ALSO means a shift in what I find myself making in the kitchen. When listening to my body, I realize it starts craving different things with the change of seasons. The heartier winter meals I gravitated towards the past few months don’t serve me the same way in the spring time.

So, in order to inspire you (and honestly, myself too!) when heading to the kitchen, I reached out to my blogger friends for some of their best spring recipes. We’ve gathered some great ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks…and (my fave) dessert!

Enjoy the collection of healthy spring recipes we can ALL use as we transition from the warmer, grounding foods of winter to the lighter meals of spring and summer.
