I took this list from an article I read and agree with it whole heatedly. I myself do not eat all these items, due to expense and preference, but they are all great additions to your meals in many ways. Try steaming some kale instead of spinach with your meal, or bake a pumpkin and then use the "meat" in place of mashed potatoes. Or cut up the pumpkin and puree it into a soup. So many great ways to cook with all of these items. Look them up at AllRecipes.com and try one this week!
