It’s officially March which means spring is in the air and I could not be more excited. Flowers are beginning to bloom and Charleston is starting to enter a warming trend. I’m finally seeing spring produce pop up in the markets- asparagus, radishes and lemons are signature to the season.
Who doesn’t like a lemon bars with just enough tang, zest and sweetness. There’s not too much wiggle room when it comes to this classic recipe so its best to stick to the basics. This delicate treat is the perfect way to end your spring meal on a sweet note.
Lemons: Lemons are a natural diuretic thus aid in elimination. They have powerful antioxidant capacity due to the the citric acid that neutralizes free radicals linked to aging and disease. They also aid in the absorption of nutrients by dissociating them from anti-nutrients like phytates and increasing their bioavailbility in the body.Facebook and Instagram to keep up with my recipes, nutrition tips, entertaining ideas and collaborations!
