Getting Back to our Roots
Fall means it’s prime time for root vegetables. Root veggies get a bad rap – they look strange, have a tough outer skin, and are thought to taste earthy and bitter. But these fall veggies are incredibly nutritious and, when prepared correctly, are incredibly delicious, too! Root vegetables are low in calories, but are nutrient-rich. Because they grow underground, they absorb lots of the nutrients from the soil, so they're packed with antioxidants and Vitamins A, B, and C. They also are high in fiber, making you feel fuller longer and helping with digestion. Why not get to your roots tonight?
