Hence, my theme for the month is food. Maybe more specifically vegetables, but we shall see. 🙂
And because I love to share nutritional/wellness facts, here’s what’s in the photo:
Red Bell Pepper – β-Carotene, Lycopene, Folic Acid, Vitamin C & Vitamin B6 ; Red bell peppers are just ripened/mature green bell peppers, and they have a lot more β-Carotene & lycopene, as you can tell by the color.
Scallions – (white part) Vitamin B & Vitamin C, (green stalk) β-Carotene ; another vegetable that is an immature version of something else, namely onions.
Celery – Vitamin C, Potassium, Calcium ; Celery keeps its nutrients when cooked but keep in mind more of the nutrients are in the leaves…
Carrots – β-Carotene, Vitamin C ; Carrots lose less nutritients when cooked whole… That’s why whole cooked carrots taste yummier too. The best carrot though is fresh out of the garden. Mmmmm. Can’t wait until springtime!
Oh and this wasn’t just a photo shoot – it was preparation for making tofu salad also! 🙂
Thank you for checking this out and have fun with your TAD.
