When it comes to buying veggies, don't get stuck in a rut. Every week most of us buy familiar veggies like carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, and tomatoes. But there are so many fruits and veggies out there, so why not mix it up a little and buy something new?
Next time you shop, put a veggie you've never tried into your cart such as okra, sunburst squash, turnips, or a new kind of Winter squash such as Kabocha. Searching out new produce is a way to shop seasonally as well. Your new selections may be quite unfamiliar, so ask some friends for ideas on how to cook them, or look on the Internet for unique recipes. Not only will it make one of your meals more exciting for your tastebuds, but a new veggie also offers different vitamins and minerals. Tell me, what veggie have you never tried that you're inspired to pick up this week?
