February: Brown Foods

brown foods2 Brown may not be the most exciting hue of the bunch, but that doesn't mean these colored foods aren't as delicious or nutritionally beneficial. February in Vermont simply doesn't offer the most vibrant of reds and greens, as we'll find in later months this year. However, we can still enjoy Vermont's variety of brown foods and complement those that are not local with other colored items that are.

This month we'll look at foods like potatoes, lentils and whole grains. Unlike other colored foods such as blueberries or tomatoes that have a few key phytochemicals - the naturally occurring chemical properties that give foods their colors, brown colored foods tend to each have their own unique health benefits. Look for more details with each specific post.

What are your favorite brown foods this time of year?
