Market Produce – Jan 16

potassium-potato2Potatoes are a very popular food source. Unfortunately, most people eat potatoes in the form of greasy French fries or potato chips, and even baked potatoes are typically loaded down with fats such as butter, sour cream, melted cheese and bacon bits. Such treatment can make even baked potatoes a potential contributor to a heart attack. However, by taking away the extra fat and deep frying, a baked potato once again becomes an exceptionally healthful, low calorie, high fiber food that offers significant protection against cardiovascular disease and cancer.

 

Here is what to expect at the market this week:
  • Bananas (South America and Organic)
  • Carrots (BC and Organic)
  • Broccoli (California and Organic)

  • Yukon Gold Potatoes (BC)
  • Navel Oranges (California)
