Market Produce – May 6

  What’s better than a potato that’s sweet… how bout some good old chilli revamped with sweet potatoes.  Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). They are also a good source of vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid and vitamin B6. They also have loads of dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and phosphorus.  Check out this sweet potato chilli recipe

 Here is what to expect at the market this week:

  • Bananas (South America and Organic)
  • Gala Apples (BC)
  • Avocados (Mex)
