What to eat this Ostara

Published on: March 18, 2024

Spring has arrived and if you’re wondering what to eat this season of Ostara, look to the farmers for inspiration. 

Spring is all about the seeds, new growth, and doing a little detoxing from the heavy winter foods. If you look around the produce department at your local grocery store you’ll see that asparagus, greens, and sprouts are front and center and with good reason as they are the first crops to appear during the wet, chilly days of March and April. 

Greens like arugula, kale, mustard greens, and early spinach are all good for detoxing after months of heavy potatoes and meaty stews. If you’re looking to lighten up try some sprouts and reap the benefits of B vitamins and antioxidants plus they’re great for digestion too!

In the grain section it’s time to make some shifts to lighter more cleansing options. Swap out winter’s oats for a cleansing barley. Say see-ya later to the potatoes and meal prep a batch of basmati rice and quinoa. The focus in spring is on lighter grains and a lot of greens, so mix up your lunch-time slow cooker meals with some grain bowls and salads. 

Here are a few ideas to get you started with your seasonal meal plan for early spring: 

  1. Sprout & feta omelet with whole grain toast
  2. Basmati rice & quinoa grain bowl- add lentils, chicken, or tofu for protein, and serve with greens of your choice. Drizzle with a light lemon poppy seed dressing for some zip. 
  3. Grill up some kabobs of chicken, pineapple, and veggies and serve over rice or lentil pasta. Don’t forget the asparagus!
