Your Vegetable Garden May Be Your Best Nutrient Source

It’s easy to forget–in a world of food processing, quick fixes, and pill popping–that natural foods are good sources of nutrients. In fact, our best supplies of vitamin C, zinc, beta carotene, and B vitamins are found in their original food sources.

This month’s recipes feature sensational combinations of a few power foods that really pack a punch nutritionally, helping you load up on vitamins, minerals, and protective flavonoids and antioxidants.

As an easy supplement strategy, always try to include green leafy vegetables. They’re fun to combine with a colourful variety of fruits and vegetables. In these recipes you’ll see spinach and beets combined with strawberries and oranges.

Try these recipes, see how fruit and vegetable combinations work, and then think about adding these colourful foods to your own favourite recipes. It’s especially tempting to do so now that the vegetable harvest is near. Blueberry, peach, tomato, and green pepper crops should be ready now.

Remember to supplement your diet with fresh foods from nature and you’ll get a great start on a healthy body.
