Did you know Vikings  believed  apples  were the key  to  eternal  youth?  That  asparagus is an anti-­inflammatory,  and  avocados  grow  on  evergreens  that  can  reach  65  feet  in   height? FRUITS & VEGETABLES, first in the "I Am A" series of healthful cookbooks,  is  a  delightful  mixture  of  fun  (and  often   fascinating)  facts  about  the  health  benefits  of  fruits  and  vegetables    we  all  know   we  should  be  eating  more  of,  paired  with  easy-­to-­follow  recipes  that  are  as  good   for  your  heart  &  soul  as  they  are  tasty!  A  must  for  any  cook  who  wants  to  eat   healthier,  feel  better  –  and  have  a  few  laughs  in  the  process!
About the author
Kathryn  Hartwell,  a  realtor  in  rural  Alberta,  soon   came  to  realize  residents  of  small  towns  were  hungry(!)  for  local  information,  humour  and  human  interest   stories. So together with her fellow realtor & designer Aleesha Gosling,  she launched  a  modest  monthly  magazine  to  meet  that  need.  Over  the  years  The  Newsy   Neighbour  has  grown  into  one  of  the  largest  magazines  of  its  kind  in  the  West.  One  of  its  most  popular   features,  the  I  Am  A...  recipe  series,  provided  the  basis  for  this  cookbook. Ms. Hartwell is currently working on the next installment in the "I Am A..." healthful cookbook series.
