Veggie Notes

Beets: Loose beets, without their leaves will store well for several weeks in a bag in your refrigerator.  We have some great recipes for beets on the Full Belly website.  One of my favorites is Pasta with Roasted Beet Sauce.

Peaches:  As far as I’m concerned, smallish peaches are the way to go — perfect size for a snack.  I often make breakfast smoothies with the ripe peaches.  Chop them into the blender, then add milk, ice and maybe a bit of sugar.

Parsley: This culinary herb is rich in anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and fiber with no cholesterol or fat. Is is native to Europe’s Mediterranean region. Use it fresh as a garnish, or dry to use as you would any other culinary herb.
