Ever heard of Kale? Ya us too… One of the planets healthiest foods… AND it’s one of our favorites cause it’s so versatile to use… salads, wraps, smoothies… CHIPS! Yes… Kale chips. It has more vitamins than we can count. We put it in several of our salads and bowls. Check out our Superfood Salad.
Red bell peppers
If you believe citrus fruits have the most vitamin C of any fruit or vegetable, believe again. Ounce for ounce, red bell peppers include practically 3 times as much. They’re also our favorite of the 3 main popular varieties of peppers.
They’re not just good for your immune system, but also give a little nudge to healthy skin from the Beta carotene department. We really like the flavor enhancement they give to our Baja Steak Salad
Broccoli Raw or Steamed
WE LOVE Broccoli!… and it’s turbo charged with vitamins, minerals and wait for it… Protein! Loaded with vitamins A, C, and E, as well as fiber and numerous other anti-oxidants, broccoli is one of the healthiest veggies you can place on your plate. Yummm.
The key to keeping its power unchecked is to cook it as little bit as possible– or even better, not. Steaming is the finest way to keep more nutrients in the food.
You can find broccoli all over our menu, but one of our most favorite is the Farmhouse Bowl. Everything but the house!
Whatever fresh vegetables you’re craving, eat em up and boost your immune system to stay healthy through the winter!
