Today I am linking up with Courtney @ Eat Pray Run DC today to share my favorite spring foods! 

I am totally loving spring in Texas, by the way. Living up north meant spring was always wet and muddy. Down here? Just some pretty flowers blooming and bright blue skies. Ask me in a few weeks when I’m struggling through cedar fever. 😉

One of my favorite things about spring = all of the new fruits that are in season! Along with some favorite staples… it makes for some good snacking. 🙂

 

1) Blackberries.

These are SO yummy and I can’t get enough of them! They are super cheap at the grocery store right now so I usually get a couple packs and snack on them when I need a sweet taste. I’ll also be sharing a smoothie recipe next week featuring this yummy fruit!

 

2) PROBAR Bite.

I have been relying on these as a favorite snack food for awhile, but I have to give a shoutout… they are so yummy! I love the Mixed Berry flavor. 

 

3) Summer Shandy.

Does beer count? No, seriously. Hahah. I love spring because it marks the release of Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy! This is a beer that seriously divides people (some people love it, others hate it) and I am one that truly loves it! I usually stock up in the winter months so I never have to go a month without it. 😉

 

4) Spinach.

pure deliciousness.

 

OK, so you can barely see the spinach underneath all that goodness — haha. And although you can get spinach at anytime, spring is the “official” season, so hey, shout out to the best base you can ask for when making a salad! 

 

5) Cookie Butter.

Ok, ok, I know, not really a spring food or a food I should be eating BUT it’s so amazing. I bought a jar a few weeks back (yes, I still have some left!) and promised myself it would only be an every once in awhile thing. I’ve given up my favorite spring candy — Starburst Jelly Beans — so a scoop of this here and there can’t be that tragic. 😉 P.S. Texas people, this is now at HEB!!

 

What are your favorite spring snacks? 

Have you tried cookie butter? Thoughts? 🙂
