The 11 Best Foods You Aren't Eating

Thanks, Cath, for posting this article. Here's the list of foods with some ramblings...

  1. Beets--We don't do beets, but should. Need to add it to the garden list for next year. If you have kids, do your kids eat them?
  2. Cabbage--We have a TON of cabbage growing in the garden. I make Asian salad with it and add it to soups. Any other ideas? I'd like to make sauerkraut (love it!) but have never been successful in making it taste like the store stuff...and I like the store stuff.
  3. Swiss chard--Tried one recipe with this and didn't like it. Back to the drawing board.
  4. Cinnamon--Use cinnamon all the time.
  5. Pomegranate juice--Never bought this. Not available locally, so feel kinda iffy about this one.
  6. Dried plums--Not big on prunes. But I guess we could try. ;)
  7. Pumpkin seeds--Sometimes do this at Halloween, but not a normal part of our diet.
  8. Sardines--Not sure I want to go there.
  9. Turmeric--Use it in a few Indian recipes.
  10. Frozen blueberries--Integral part of our diet. The most frequent fruit we eat.
  11. Canned pumpkin--Use butternut squash more than pumpkin. Isn't the nutritional value similar anyway??

Use your cabbage on tacos instead of lettuce. Way better!- Especially on fish tacos.

Use your cabbage (instead of lettuce) on tacos. It's way better. Especially on potato or fish tacos. Learn to make kimchee! ;)

I don't think you make kimchee with regular cabbage, do you? Don't you use, uh, what's it called? Chinese cabbage? Napa?
