February Seasonal Ingredients
I was sick almost every February as a child. This wasn’t your average rhinovirus! I mean knock-down, drag-out, weeks in bed sick.
Looking back, I rest the majority of the responsibility of this late winter malaise on my parents and their totally absent cooking skills. TV dinners, packaged foods, sugary drinks…ugh.
That experience of habitual and predictable poor health is one of the drivers for my current obsession with seasonal eating in the off-season and 4-season growing.
That, and the way my body was completely unprepared for midlife changes because of these poor eating habits established in childhood. Food really is medicine, and we can eat for wellness, every single meal, with less planning than you might think.
An Herbal Kitchen Approach to Smoothies
One of my seasonal kitchen hero’s is Kami McBride of the Herbal Kitchen. I’ve used her book and online resources for years, and I continue to keep learning ways to bring healing and flavorful herbs into my meals.
Kami offers a free online webinar on crafting green smoothies with healthy herb-intensive smoothies. You can take it at this link!
In the course, Kami offers a base recipe that you can use to create seasonal herbal smoothies. I used her recommendations as a guide for selecting smoothie recipes that are nourishing, flavorful, and perhaps healing.
Seasonal eating in February is interesting because we have all the winter ingredients from our pantry and freezer, some locally sourced ingredients from winter farmers markets, and the emergence of new growth in our 4-season kitchen garden.
Use this list of seasonal foods for the month of February to create healthy smoothies for breakfast or lunch as part of your seasonal eating meal plan.
