Fruits and veggies tend to have high concentrations of nutrients in their skin. Hence the vibrant display of color on their outerwear. In the US we tend to peel everything, wasting part of the produce and throwing valuable vitamins and minerals out with the trash. Next time you take the peeler out of that kitchen drawer, stop to think…can I leave the skin on?
Here are some appealing powerhouses that I don’t peel (provided they’re organic):
- Sweet Potatoes
- Radishes (bet you saw that coming)
It’s that time again. If you have time to read this message, you have time to stand up and give me 20 more wall push ups. Ready, set, go! (Yes, now) (No, not later, now) (Enough with the excuses, do it now!)
I’ve become a big believer of balancing my yin with my yang. Figs with blue cheese, a brisk walk followed by lounging in the sun, bacon with sliced tomatoes, some serious thinking followed by some seriously mindless TV. I find the more yin I include with my yang, or yang with my yin, the less likely I am to binge on either one. Who says you can’t have it all?
Granted, they look somewhat like vegetables from Mars, but Kohlrabi is high in fiber and really high in a wide range of vitamins. What to do with this strange looking delectable? I think you know what I’m going to say…. yes, cut them up and roast ’em! You’ll never know their deliciousness unless you try….
The more the better! Variety means more nutrients, more used muscle groups, more brain stimulation, more to enjoy. It is, after all, the spice of life!
They said you’ve been neglecting them 😦
