Food Tip Nothing says spring like this Fava Bean, Artichoke Heart, and Grape Tomato Salad recipe, with lemon vinaigrette and fresh mint and parsley.

 

For bright, refreshing flavors that celebrate the arrival of spring, make this delicious and waistline-friendly Fava Bean, Artichoke Heart, and Grape Tomato Salad. Brimming with protein, fiber and essential vitamins and minerals like iron and folate, fava beans are the perfect food for women whose diets fall short of such nutrients. Plus, fiber and protein fill your belly and keeps it full, so you don’t need to raid the refrigerator two hours later. Fresh mint and parsley pack a flavorful punch and a ton of nutritional benefits. Herbs are an easy — and tasty — way to squeeze more vitamins into your diet. Parsley is high in vitamins K, and C, and it’s a good source of valuable minerals like potassium, calcium, iron and magnesium. It also possesses the power of fiber to help prevent spikes in blood sugar. And when you have more flavors in your dish, you’re less likely to reach for extra salt.
