There’s no better veg to accompany the early eggs of spring than tender, young asparagus, which is just starting to become available now in the northeast. The dish you want: a simple frittata. If you’re restricting cholesterol, you can stick with the egg substitute as written in the recipe, but if you keep chickens, you can make this just as easily by swapping in six eggs.
Whether you’re grabbing baby greens from the farmer’s market or harvesting sprouts from your windowsill, this fresh and delightful salmon recipe is a wonderful way to enjoy those earliest spring greens.

If you want a timesaving meal, chili is generally brilliant, and this vegetarian version is no exception. You can either make it a freezer meal by combining all of the ingredients except the liquids in a bag and freezing flat to be thrown in the slow cooker at a later date, or you can cook a big batch and freeze it in single-meal portions for easy lunches.
Salmon is packed with omega-3s and micronutrients that are great for your heart and brain, but many people avoid it because of concern over mercury. The fear is legitimate: Atlantic salmon is on the high-mercury fish list. Wild-caught Alaskan salmon, however, is safe as houses. Choose the right salmon and you’re on the right road for fear-free, fantastically fishy nutrition.
Overnight oatmeal is a piece of cake, and oatmeal is a great food to include in a heart-healthy diet. The only thing to watch out for is added sugar: many of us like our oatmeal covered in sugar. This recipe uses carrots and raisins and spice to minimize the need for sugar while keeping the flavor and texture high. It does include maple syrup, but you can leave the maple syrup out without hurting the flavor if you want to balance the nutrition a bit better.
