Superfood lunches are a weekday can-do when you combine nutrient-packed ingredients with recipes that are make-ahead easy and highly portable. Salmon, spinach and lentils are among the staple superfoods for the midday meal because they provide a great base for a variety of flavors. These healthy and nutritious meals also provide lasting nourishment to make you feel energized and avoid that post-lunch slump.

As a resident of the icy tundra that is Vermont, I get pretty excited about signs of spring. Asparagus, with its delicate green color, bright flavor and newborn-shoot shape isn't so much a sign of spring as it IS spring. When it arrives in tight bundles at my local farmers' market, I always smile, because food is about to get really good again: snap peas, spring chickens, radishes, artichokes—the list goes on and on! Served on its own (roasted in the oven, with just a little olive oil and sea salt), asparagus has a rich, complex flavor with hints of lemon and caramelized sugar. Delish!
