A lot of folks have gardens. It’s a wise thing to do, especially in this economy. However, what are you growing? Are you growing foods because of taste, tradition, or are you considering the food value of what you are growing. For instance, beets are very low in nutritional value, but the leaves are very high. Are you using the leaves?
Certain combinations of food act as catalysts for the nutrition of other foods. Adding dried Moringa leaves to your recipes can really spike the food value of the dish you are preparing, often without knowledge of it’s inclusion.
A balanced diet contains legumes, cereal, leafy greens, and some root crops (sweet potato), even if no meat is available. The combination works with each other, adding benefits that one can not provide alone.
