Green beans provide nutrients that boost the immune system, and decrease the risk of heart disease and gastrointestinal distress.

 

 

Orange juice is full of vitamins and minerals that improve heart health, boost the immune system, and may help to prevent kidney stones.

 

 

Pomegranates are rich in nutrients that help to lower blood pressure, fight inflammation, decrease the risk of heart disease, and can help fight bacterial and fungal infections.

 

 

Balsamic vinegar is great for healthy digestion, helps to lower cholesterol, improves blood circulation, and is good for healthy skin. It is also diabetes-friendly and can help avoid blood sugar spikes.

 

 

Cranberries are high in vitamins and minerals that can prevent harmful bacteria such as E.coli from causing urinary tract infections. Cranberries can also help to improve digestion, reduce bad cholesterol, and boost the immune system.

Food produced locally is more nutritious. This is because food contains the most nutrients around the time it is harvested. The longer food spends traveling, the less nutrition it contains. Less time traveling also means less exposure to harmful chemicals and less production of greenhouse gasses. What a tasteful way to decrease our carbon footprint!
