Colorful Vegetables A-K

Each vegetable color provides its own unique flavor, texture, and nutrition. Look for lots of color in your shopping bag and on your plate. When you get accustomed to a colorful plate, you will notice when it looks a little bland, and wonder what colors you want to add. Color is fun! Enjoy a rainbow of colorful vegetables.
