We thought with Halloween coming up that it might be fun idea to talk about orange foods, healthy too. Orange colored foods have an important place on a healthy, colorful plate as their color means these foods are rich in antioxidant beta-carotene, Vitamin A, and more often than not vitamin C too. They include pumpkin, winter squashes, rutabaga, carrots and, of course, oranges! In this lesson Ann will show you some great ways to use carrots, oranges and a yummy fish dish that uses winter squash as a surprising side. Look and learn!
