Spring Season 2021: From Arugula to Carrots, Here Are 5 Healthy Foods to Welcome First Day of Spring


Spring Equinox or March Equinox will be observed this year on March 20. This event is also known as Vernal Equinox and marks the start of spring in the northern half of the globe. As per the Gregorian calendar, the Northward equinox can occur as early as March 19 or as late as March 21 at Greenwich. The equinox only occurs twice a year, in March to mark the beginning of spring, and in September for autumn. Meanwhile, on the occasion of Vernal Equinox 2021, we bring you five healthy foods for the arrival of spring.

Equinox is a Latin word that means “equal night”. On the equinox, the length of day and night is nearly equal in all parts of the world. With the equinox, enjoy the increasing sunlight hours, with earlier dawns and later sunsets. After the conclusion of Spring Equinox, the Northern Hemisphere begins to be tilted more towards the Sun, resulting in increasing daylight hours and warming temperatures. Vernal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere will technically start at 9:37 am in the morning. Now let us speak of healthy seasonal spring foods which should be included in your meals to mark the arrival of Spring.

2. Asparagus – This seasonal spring vegetable is rich in vitamin K which helps prevent blood clotting and improving bone health. Asparagus can improve your overall health.
