Spring is in the Air + Colorful Veggie Stir Fry Recipe

Spring has arrived in Portland! It has been so exciting to see blooming flowers and hear birds singing.  Here are three healthy ways to celebrate spring:

  1. Go outside for fresh air and a walk
  2. Make a meal with some seasonal spring veggies
  3. Stop, breathe and smell the roses (or tulips or daffodils)


I know there are many areas still thawing out from winter, but spring is coming, and boy is it great when it arrives!  If you are unable to enjoy some spring sunshine outside, perhaps you can try this Colorful Veggie Stir Fry recipe to tide you over until the snow melts.

  1. I’m looking forward to being able to run outside more! I love running in cooler weather, and I thought winter would be awesome.. but the dry air messes with my eyes and sinuses! Not that Spring is any different… allergy season is definitely coming, but I agree with you: I love seeing the flowers bloom!
