Wellness Tip
Cruciferous Vegetables
Please pass the cruciferous vegetables. This vegetable family includes kale, cauliflower, broccoli, and brussels sprouts. They seem to be linked to reducing cancers, preventing cataracts, fighting heart disease and regulating blood pressure. Try to include this group of vegetables in your diet at least 2-3 times per week. They are best when raw or lightly cooked.

Recipe
Eggplant - Tomato Lemon Dip
Category: Dips
Description: Eggplant Dip has a great texture with a tangy, vinegary, seasoned taste that is mellowed with the pita. You also can smear the dip inside warm crepes for a different kind of presentation.
While it is generally thought of as a vegetable, eggplant is actually a fruit.
Eggplant is very low in sodium, fat and cholesterol, and contains substantial amounts of many essential nutrients. One cup of cooked eggplant has only 28 calories, and it is an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber, which helps to remove toxins from the body, lowers cholesterol and reduces the risk of colon cancer.
