A Food for All Seasons-California Black Ripe Olives by Elizabeth Pivonka, Ph.D., R.D., Produce for Better Health
(NAPSA) - Eating a variety of delicious fruits and vegetables every day, as part of a healthy diet, is the best way to enjoy all of the disease-fighting benefits they provide. The 5 A Day Color Way Plan groups fruits and vegetables into 5 color groups-blue/purple, green, white, yellow/orange and red.
Young and old alike love olives. Technicolor Vegetable Saute is a delicious, easy to prepare, recipe that combines fruit and vegetables from four different color groups into a nutrient-rich, colorful side dish. In addition to vegetable side dishes, olives are tasty additions to eggs, potato pancakes and salads. For your next BBQ, cut up chunks of fruits and vegetables, include whole, pitted California Black Ripe Olives, and lean meats, and let everyone put together his own skewer for grilling.
Steam beets until crisp tender, about 5 minutes; set aside. Steam carrots and squash about 3-4 minutes, add green beans and continue steaming just until crisp tender.
Coat large nonstick skillet with cooking spray (approx. 3-4 second spray).
Add orange juice concentrate, thyme, garlic powder and olives and heat over medium-high heat. Stir in carrot mixture and heat through; sprinkle with beets and serve.
Serve with roasted chicken.
