A dieter's delight and salvation, greens offer lots of healthy eating without an abundance of calories.
Also known as rosette pak choi and flat cabbage, tat soi has very thick lustrous black green leaves arranged in a rosette of regular, concentric circles, with prostrate and upright varieties. The leaves vary from flat and smooth to puckered and crepe-like. This is an attractive plant with potential as a border for flower beds and ground cover as well as a vegetable. Some authorities include tat soi in the Brassica rapa (Chinensis Group).
It has a pleasant and sweet aroma flavor like a mild mustard flavor, similar to bok choi. Tatsoi is generally eaten raw, but may be added to soups at the end of the cooking period. When tatsoi is mixed with other greens it enhances the flavor and nutritional value. Tatsoi may not be available in your regular grocery store. Specialty markets may carry it, or it can be grown from seeds, in warmer climates.
Turnips should be stored at 35 degrees F, and this will keep up to 4 months.
Many people swear by the benefits of eating raw. Whatever the health advantages may be, preparing raw food consumes less energy and because raw food is usually fresh by definition, it is more likely to be locally grown.
At the scale manufacturers' convention, many people would get excited to see which machines would give them the exact weight. But some visitors would try to avoid this as much as they could as they didn't wish to advertise their actual weight in public. A smooth-talking salesman convinced a woman to get on the scale and promised her that no one would look at the weight once she's on it. He also promised that she would be the only to see her weight and that she can also cover the display with a cloth, if she pleased.She finally got on the scale, and in couple of seconds, the mechanical voice from the machine yelled: One hundred and sixty-three.
