Did You Know?
GRAPE
Grapes were domesticated in the South Caucasus some 8,00 years ago and have long been fermented to make wine by ancient Israelites, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. "white" grapes evolved from red grapes by means of genetic mutations that switched off the grapes' ability to make anthocyanin's, natural purplish pigments.
The flavonoids and resveratrol present in the skin of red grapes ( and in red wine) have been found to combat inflammation, blood clothing, ...and oxidation of "bad" low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol-all factors in the buildup of fatty deposits in blood vessels. Research suggests purple grape juice confers similar benefits. Grapes are also a great source of ascorbic acid, with a single cup providing a quarter of the recommended daily intake.
Most of the grapes you find in the U.S. supermarkets hail from California, except in the winter they are often from Chile. Subject to rot, grapes are often liberally treated with fungicides. Organic, while pricier, is a good way to go to protect the planet.
GIVES YOU:
Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Phytonutrients.

EGGPLANT
Solanum Melongena
Like potatoes and tomatoes, eggplant belongs to the nightshade family, though it's actually a large berry botanically (a fruit categorized and consumed as a vegetable). Eggplant's earliest history dates back to China around A.D. 544. Centuries
Eggplant is low in calories yet high in fiber-25 calories and 3 grams of fiber per 100 grams-and its meaty texture creates a feeling of fullness. The eggplant's rich purple color comes from nasunin, an anthocyanin antioxidant in its skin that may help lower risk of cancer and heart disease.
Gives You: Dietary Fiber, Thiamine, Pyridoxine, Phytonutrients.

CARROT

Carrot belongs to the parsley family. The earliest carrot roots most likely originated in Afghanistan and where skinnier and more purple than today's. Dutch horticulturists in 17 century were the first to harvest the large, bright orange carrots, which were used to feed cows to ensure butter with a rich yellow hue.

The orange color beta-carotene converts into vitamin A, which improves night vision ands protects skin from some damage and also offers cardiovascular protection.

Gives You: Vitamin A, Dietary fiber, Vitamin C, Potassium, Phytonutrients.

Bok Choy
Bok Choy (also known as white mustard cabbage) means "white vegetable" in Cantonese, a reference to the snowy white stalks of the plant. It has cultivated in China for more than 6,000 years.
Choose bunches with firm white stalks and crisp green leaves. You can steamed, braised, sautéed, or added to soups.
Bok Choy is excellent source of vitamins C and K, as well as Folate and Calcium. It also contains carotenoids like beta-carotene, which may help prevent heart disease and stroke as well as some cancers. Bok Choy also has phytochemicals such as indole3-carbinol (an indole) and sulforaphane(an isothiocyanate), which have been found to inhibit the development of bladder, breast, colon, liver, lung, and stomach cancers in animal studies, though more research in humans is still needed.
Gives You :
Protein, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Phytonutrients.

ARTICHOKE
The most common variety of artichoke is the globe artichoke. This giant bud of a thistle plant is native to the Mediterranean and was common to ancient Greeks and Romans. Today most of the artichokes grown commercially in the United States come from California, primarily from the foggy coastal climate of Monterrey County.
They are thirsty plants, requiring frequent irrigation. How ever, the no-plastic-required spiny exteriors reduce packaging waste.
A large artichoke contains 75 calories and packs more antioxidants than any other cooked vegetable.
GIVES YOU: Dietary fiber, Folate, Vitamin C, Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Phosphorous, Copper, Phytonutrients (flavonoids, phenolic acids, flavonolignans.
Which are important to liver and bladder health.
