How to Select Root Vegetables

If you want fresh produce for your family, then you need to be picky! Root vegetables, such as beets, carrots, radishes, and potatoes are very healthy choices for your diet. Whether you go to the farmer’s market or a grocery store, make sure the produce is fresh, solid, strong, and has that “snap” to it when you take a bite or cut into it. Here are some clues that your root vegetables are not fresh: they feel soft when you pick them up, they feel rubbery, and look discolored.[1]

Do not settle for second best when it comes to fresh produce and don’t be afraid to ask for assistance. The farmer or produce manager will be glad to help you find the best for your family.
