Want to eat better this season? Add these eight vegetarian and pescatarian healthy spring meals to your routine!
The weather for the first week of spring has officially been all over the place. Like most of the country we started with snow and then moved onto wind and rain! Even with the wonky start to the season I’ve already been moving past comfort food to lighter options for spring. Even if the weather isn’t matching the calendar, my food can and with these healthy spring meals yours can too!
Spring food to me means plenty of green including lots of spring asparagus. It also means a return of more fresh vegetables fresh vegetables packaged in generally lighter meals that are easy and fast to enjoy!

They are all either vegetarian or pescatarian, are made with easy to find ingredients AND take less than 30 minutes to make! What else do you want in a meal? 🙂 Pin
