Produce Pick: Kale
Dynamic dietician duo Liz and Janice are on a mission to help families eat healthier. On their recent visits to their local farmers market they've enjoyed the abundance of kale. The 2013 Red Tricycle Totally Awesome Awards Finalists explain, "Right now, farmers' markets across the country are brimming with just-picked kale. As dietitians, we love kale because it's packed with nutrients like immune-boosting vitamin A and bone-building vitamin K. It's a versatile veggie, and our kids always say, 'more please,' when we turn it into kale chips or chop it up and mix into crisp summer salads or savory burritos." A hit with both of their families this summer is this recipe for kale and black bean burritos.
What’s your favorite farmers market find? And, do you have a great recipe that goes along with your seasonal produce pick?
