The International SuperMarket

This weeks nutritious and delicious pose isn’t of a recipe but to highlight a food that if you haven’t tried it you should. I was introduced to rhubarb about three years ago. Had never heard of it before.

The person who recommended me giving it a try knew that I like making greens with turnip and mustard greens so  they suggested me to try rhubarb in the mix of it. not only would it give some additional flavor but the good nutritional facts that it would give as well.

I say all of that to say if you have not tried shopping outside of your normal local store you should really try shopping at an international market. It exposes you to a lot of foods that you never knew existed and provide great benefits to the body. You definitely would not see them in your regular visited store.

Take a look at these from the International Market I visited:

If you haven’t tried cooking rhubarb with other greens, you should! 

I take a big pot on the stove fill the pan just enough with water and then add all of my greens in and let them steam. I did add my favorite herbs and spices and some chopped up onions and let it all marinate. Once the greens are thoroughly cooked it’s time to eat!

If you want a more heartier flavor you can add smoked turkey sausage, neck bone, or bacon into the greens. 

Moral of this post, try new things get out of your comfort zone and do your research on food that you’ve never tried before.

I took other pictures of food I have never seen before and to be honest they look scary  but I honestly thought although they may look creepy from the outside they are probably very sweet on the inside. 

I’m glad I was willing to try something different than I was use to. By doing this from time to time it’s increased my kitchen library of foods to make!

 Here is the benefit highlights on Rhubarb!

Rhubarb is also a great source of vitamin K1, which is important for blood clotting and bone health. A half cup of cooked rhubarb provides more than one-third of the recommended dietary intake of vitamin K1, along with two grams of fiber (which helps prevent colorectal cancer), some calcium and vitamin C.

What are YOU willing to try different?
