Delight Gluten Free - - Indulge -

It’s the mid­dle of win­ter. Light is fleet­ing, tem­per­a­tures are low and of­ten so is our de­fense against colds and flus be­ing passed around at the of­fice and school. Luck­ily, the pro­duce avail­able at this time of year is full of the an­tiox­i­dants and vi­ta­mins we need to keep us healthy.

Sweet Pota­toes serve up sev­eral vi­ta­mins and min­er­als needed to keep healthy like vi­ta­mins A, C, B6, B3, B1, B2, potas­sium and fiber. The mild sweet­ness of the fla­vor pairs with smoky fla­vors like ba­con, or mixed with an herb blend, gar­lic, curry, and co­conut milk,– it is a great in­gre­di­ent base to ex­per­i­ment with to cre­ate dif­fer­ent dishes.

Or­anges are well known for their vi­ta­min C con­tent but are also a great source of fiber, potas­sium and cal­cium. They can be mixed with many types of veg­eta­bles like kale, arugula and fen­nel just to name a few; added to hot dishes like a Chi­nese stir fry to add a sweet tangi­ness to the dish. Or­anges also com­bine well with sweets like choco­late and creams. JAN­UARY - FE­BRU­ARY 2016
