Farmers Market Finds 

Yep, you guessed it! I spent another morning at the Minneapolis farmers market and found some amazing goodies!

  1. Kohlrabi
  2. Beets
  3. Strawberries
  4. Radishes
  5. Garlic Scapes

The usual freshly squeezed 🙂

This is my favorite way to enjoy beets! I roasted them with salt, pepper and olive oil.

Health Benefits of Beets:

  • Folic acid
  • magnesium
  • iron
  • detoxifies liver & gull bladder
  • prevents heart disease
  • immunity booster

Got these for $2! Garlic scapes are the flower bud of a garlic plant. They taste exactly like garlic and can be used in place of it in any recipe.

Health Benefits of Garlic Scapes:

  • boosts immunity
  • anti-bacterial
  • increases absorption of iron
  • antioxidants
  • fights cold and flu
  • lowers cholesterol
  • lowers blood sugar
  • aids in digestion
  • breaks down blood clots
  • reduces the risk of heart attacks and strokes
