Healthy Eating Tip: Try a New Veggie

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?

I recently started using parsnips in things as a substitute for potatoes. They've got a really interesting flavor. I'm also really glad I discovered jicama...I LOVE pieces of jicama raw with salsa. It's also really good if you make it into slaw.

I tried butternut squash not too long ago, and now I love it! I can't get enough.

Ew, I tried cactus recently too and it was HORRIBLE! I have been on a big eggplant, pumpkin and squash kick recently.

The bf and I picked up cactus at the store recently on a whim. The lady at the register who was from Arizona told us she used to make it with beef (like a take on beef and brocoli) I would advise AVOIDING cactus. It was terrible. :-(

I've been cooking lots of ratatouille with eggplant recently. I've never liked it much before but together with other vegetables (and cooked with lots wine of course) it tastes delicous.

I really love beets, but I have no idea how to cook/prepare them. Any ideas?

I'm too addicted to asparagus to get much veggie variety lately. =(
