Summer is an amazing time at Motts Channel Seafood. For several years now we have sourced the best in local veggies with the hope that it might save you an extra stop on the way home and inspire you to add some delicious color and flavors to your next meal. Here are just a few other reasons to add fresh summer veggies to your shopping list:
1. They fight bloat: Vegetables are rich in fiber, which flushes out waste and gastric irritants and prevents constipation by keeping the digestive tract moving.
2. They create a youthful glow: Vegetables prevent unwanted signs of aging and keep skin young and supple.
3. They reduce stress: Nutrients like magnesium and vitamin C are quickly depleted during stressful times. Luckily, many vegetables contain these very nutrients, as well as tension-reducing omega-3 fatty acids (Fish!) and B vitamins that fight anxiety and depression.
4. They protect your bones: Many summer vegetables offer them same bone-protecting nutrients found in dairy foods plus they add bone-building vitamin K, magnesium, potassium and prebiotic fiber (Source: CNN.com).
