Eat more vegetables.
Theme: Eat Yer Colors
Color is critical in eating and cooking. Not only do you want to eat stuff that looks good, the more colorful it is the better it is for you. We know trends like 'eat the rainbow' often sound silly, but a rainbow plate packs a big, balanced nutritional punch (plus it's pretty). Color is super important in cooking because when vegetables are brightest in color, they're done cooking! Veggies should be crispy and crunchy and bright. Broccoli should be bright green when you eat it! If it falls over into the yellower side, you've gone too far. As the veg loses color, it also loses nutrients. Welcome the crunch: It means you're gettin' your vitamins and minerals.

  • Tip: Any item you would cook, you can also freeze.
  • Tip 2: A dull knife conspires against you and slows you down. A sharp knife makes your food taste better (and look better, too). NY Times
  • Any green needs to be as dry as possible, wrapped in a paper towel in a plastic bag and kept in the fridge crisper.

Frozen Cauliflower has an exceptional nutritional density, which means it contains substantial amounts of vitamins and minerals with very few calories. Mark Twain calls cauliflower "cabbage with a college education". For a quick fix, sauté cauliflower florets and sliced garlic in olive oil until browned and tender. To boost the flavor, toss with raisins, pine nuts, crushed red pepper, and salt. Dagele Brothers Farm (IPM)
Storage: Pop in the freezer.
Cauliflower Popcorn: Kid-friendly alert! May even rival kale chips...Coat with salt and olive oil, then spread on a lined baking sheet. Roast in the oven at 425 degrees for a half hour or so, turning the cauliflower over halfway through. Serve warm and toss with parmesan cheese.

Burritos are a great way to hide vegetables that your kids won't normally touch—trust us, we sneak vegetables into lots of things!

Multicolored Beets Did you know that a cup of raw beets has only 58 calories? Beets are in the same family as chard and spinach. If you have a mandolin slicer, julienne the beets and toss with oil and lemon—beautiful and tasty. This web page has a nice summary of how to microwave, roast, sauté, and steam beets. Notice boiling was not mentioned—do not boil! Boiling sacrifices the quality and flavor of the beet and releases an unpleasant aroma. Juniper Hill Farm (CO)
Storage: At least 2 weeks in the fridge.
