Greenmarket's Fresh Harvest and all The Amazing Health Benefits — i robbed a farmer #spring

"Welcome to sunny and rainy May! So many feelings when the tease of Spring
is here, but we all know that summer is just around the corner. 
A stroll through the Farmer's Market will remind you that the change in
weather has resulted in an exciting new harvest. May veggies are super
resilient, full of flavor and packed with great health benefits. Here is a
list of them in case you feel adventurous and choose to make them part of
your May feasting.
Asparagus: This spring staple is anti-inflammatory, high in antioxidants
that can neutralize free-radicals and even slow the signs of aging, a good
source of fiber, vitamins A, C, E, K, and chromium, a trace mineral that
enhances the ability of insulin to transport glucose from the bloodstream
into cells. It is also effective as a natural diuretic that helps rid the
body of excess salts. Another anti-aging property of this delicious spring
veggie is that it may help our brains fight cognitive decline. Like leafy
greens, asparagus delivers folate, which works with vitamin B12 to help
prevent cognitive impairment.
Beet Greens: Besides supplying good amounts of protein, phosphorus, and
zinc, beet greens are also a great source of fiber. Packed with
antioxidants, they’re high in vitamin B6, magnesium, potassium, copper, and
manganese, and low in fat and cholesterol. Studies have also shown that the
vitamin K in beet greens contains blood clotting properties, helps ward off
osteoporosis, works with calcium to boost bone strength, and may also play
a role in fighting Alzheimer’s. Beet greens have a higher iron content than
spinach, and a higher nutritional value than the beetroot itself. The
vitamin A content in beet greens helps strengthen the immune system and
stimulates production of antibodies and white blood cells. The
beta-carotene in vitamin A is a known antioxidant that can fight the
effects of free radicals in the body along with cancer and heart disease.
