Name that Vegy/Fruit:
Bell Peppers - Bell peppers contain very high amounts of vitamin C and Vitamin A. One cup of raw, red bell peppers supplies roughly 290 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C and 105 percent of the RDA for vitamin A. Bell peppers also contain significant amounts of vitamin B 6 and dietary fiber.
Kale - In addition to being a leafy green much like spinach, kale has so many benefits it should star in family meals on a regular basis. Kale provides antioxidants, is an excellent source of vitamins K, A and C, and is a good source of fiber! Learn more about how to prepare kale at eatright.org.
The farmers’ markets are sponsored by Humility of Mary Health Partners and Lake-to-River Food Cooperative to bring fresh produce to its employees and neighbors. Farmers who produce locally grown, sustainable produce will be present at the market.
