Demystifying Avocados

Posted by Boston Organics on Jul 17, 2024 9:58:04 AM

We love avocados, finding their mild, buttery taste and creamy texture a welcome addition to oh so many dishes while being good for you too! The Harvard Gazette recently reported that eating just one avocado a week may lower heart disease risk. Yummy, versatile and heart healthy - everyone loves that!! If that's not enough to convince you to add this beloved gem to your meals we’re here to share some ideas with you and to go beneath their pebbly peel.

In many ways, avocados defy characterization. Though often thought of as a fruit, they are most commonly eaten in a savory setting. Be it as a smiley green garnish or as guacamole or in a salad or in avocado toast, avocados sure do get around.

Are Pluots GMOs? And Other Questions About Hybrid Stone Fruit

Posted by Boston Organics on Jun 18, 2024 11:45:00 AM

What would the perfect fruit look like? It would probably be sweet and juicy. It might have a bright, edible skin so you don’t have to worry about messy peels and rinds. While you’re at it, you’d want to make it easy to grow and sturdy enough to take with you without getting smooshed like a brown banana at the bottom of lunch bag. Do you have an image in your head yet? Does it look something like this:

This is a pluot, a beautifully constructed hybrid-cross between a plum and an apricot. Some people consider pluots to be the perfect fruit, but it’s also very much still a work in progress. Though the first successfully controlled cross between a plum and an apricot occurred more than a century ago, most people are unfamiliar with pluots. And those who are fortunate enough to have tasted these juicy fruits are often filled with questions about the mysterious hybrid.

Fortunately, Boston Organics is here to take you “beneath the peel,” giving you a better understanding of the mysteries behind the organic pluot.

You're missing out on cabbage

Posted by Boston Organics on Jun 11, 2024 1:00:00 PM

Cabbage is often overlooked, relegated to an after thought or over used in bland, overly sweet coleslaws. With its mild flavor, cabbage can compliment many a flavor profile - soy. ginger and garlic, yes please; cilantro, chile and scallions, why not; curry? we'd do that. It adds crispness to your sandwich or spring roll, beefs up your next stew, fills out your soup. And it’s extremely affordable if you’re looking to stretch your dollar. Here are our favorite cabbage recipes!

Food as Medicine: Leafy Greens

Posted by Boston Organics on Jun 4, 2024 1:15:00 AM

Good food is the foundation of good health. Health scientists, and we’re sure most of you, would agree that optimal nutrition is critical to promoting health, improving general well-being and reducing the risk of developing certain diseases. Well, those principles are gaining traction in the Food as Medicine movement which recognizes the potential of food to help prevent and manage chronic disease. Many doctors aim to prevent, limit or even reverse disease by changing what patients eat. The movement has been around for decades, but it's making inroads as physicians and medical institutions make food a formal part of treatment, rather than relying solely on medications. Responding to studies, many insurers are even providing subsidies to cover produce prescriptions for clients: the health benefits are that dramatic!
