Did You Know?
Carrots are not always orange! They can also be found in purple, white, red or yellow! Carrots originated around 900-1000 A.D. in Afghanistan. Today, they provide 30% of the vitamin A in the US diet which is important for healthy vision and skin, and helps hearts stay healthy.
Sweet potatoes are not the same as yams! True yams are native to Africa and part of the lily family, while sweet potatoes come in two colors and share the same family as morning glories. In South America, traces of Peruvian sweet potato dating as far back as 8000 BC have been found. Sweet potatoes are rich in complex carbohydrates and dietary fiber and are an excellent source of vitamin A, an important nutrient for vision and immune system health.
Spinach was first cultivated over 2,000 years ago in Persia! It is a nutritional powerhouse, rich in iron which plays a central role in the function of red blood cells. Spinach is also an excellent source of vitamins A and C, as well as being a good source of magnesium which is necessary for healthy artery, blood, bone, heart, muscle, and nerve function.
