About Me

My friends call me the "grammar goddess." Really. ;-) I own a freelance writing, editing and tutoring business. Previously, I served three years as food editor for The Morning Sun in Mt. Pleasant, which kindled my interest in food writing. My other areas of expertise in writing include features, community news, architecture/construction and engraving/personalization. I have a frightening number of cookbooks and watch too many DIY, HGTV, Food Network, Cooking Channel and Antiques Roadshow (BBC and PBS versions) shows. And I tweak nearly every recipe I make.

'Top 10 Veggies' Are Cheap and Nutritious

Two or three weeks ago, I saw an interesting link on AOL's home page: Top 10 Vegetables With the Most Nutritional Bang for Your Buck by Sally Deneen on WalletPop. It's worth the read, really, to find what she calls "the best, cheapest veggies."

Here's the list:

2.Collard greens
3.Mustard greens
4.Turnip greens
6.Cauliflower heads
7.Brussels sprouts
8.Broccoli florets
10.Cauliflower florets

Reading it made me want to make a pot of vegetable soup using as many of these as possible; since it was very hot, the feeling passed. Quickly.

Interestingly enough, aside from carrots, spinach and broccoli, they are all vegetables I didn't care for as a kid. What would you make with the veggies on this list? And how would you make them appeal to kids? Let me know.
