Hi There, Fellow Gardeners!
This is AnnahMarie.
Today, Organic Gurlz Gardens of Fort Wayne, Indiana will be sharing information on Growing the Perfect Salad in Your Garden.
You may find yourself craving a salad. A strange feeling, but the taste of scrumptious greens excites the taste buds! As you look out of your window to your garden, you decide to voyage out with a bucket and scissors in hand to harvest.
One key question: what are some great ingredients to incorporate into a salad? We at Organic Gurlz Gardens are here to share a few scrumptious fruits and vegetables with some informational benefits.
This leafy green is great for fighting cancer, strengthening your vision, and is rich in potassium.
Along with these benefits, spinach also boosts brain and nervous system functions.
Keep spinach in mind when prepping your salad dish!
Broccoli is an awesome bone strengthening, cancer fighting vegetable.
Also high in Vitamin C, broccoli can toughen the immune system.
Both the head and the leaves can be consumed raw or steamed. My mommy, Becca, often tosses them in a salad or makes a wrap with the leaves! It is a perfect “healthy” lunch for on the go!
“There is nothing like fresh Broccoli leaves from your Organic Garden! The taste is exceptional.” – Becca B
Carrots are amazingly high in vitamin A and C, have a perfect amount of potassium, and may help prevent cancer!
In addition, carrots may help prevent heart disease, assist with digestion, and strengthen up the immune system guards.
Although carrots are generally orange in color, there are a variety of hues – purple, red, white, and yellow.
Even though cherry tomatoes are tiny, they pack a quite a big punch (in a good way). In several independent studies, cherry tomatoes have been shown to carry soothing properties in addition to their vibrant hue and delicious flavor. Tomatoes are also filled with Vitamins A, C, and K. So, when out harvesting the fruit off the vine, sure to eat the little ‘poofs’ of benefits and delightfulness.
Don’t forget – Herbs and edible flowers can also be tossed into a salad!
Now how does a yummy fresh garden salad sound for your kitchen table or countertop?
Don’t forget to tell your kids, grandchildren , nieces and nephews about the Kids Oasis!
