Nutrition

  • ‚ÄčFresh local green beans are available in Ontario from June to October. Green beans are only 30 calories with 3 grams of fibre in 1 cup. They're rich in vitamin K which is needed for bone health and to prevent osteoporosis.
  • Just like carrots and tomatoes, green beans contain antioxidants called carotenoids. We don't see the orange and red hues in green beans because they're also high in chlorophyll, a nutrient which gives them their vibrant green colour. 
  • Ontario radishes are typically in season from May to November. This vegetable has heat because it's related to wasabi and mustard. Radishes are rich in folate, a B vitamin needed for cell growth and repair.
