Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas).
Parsnips contain a wide variety of vitamins, dietary fiber, folate, potassium and vitamin C
Potatoes are a good source of vitamin B6, potassium, copper, vitamin C, manganese, and phosphorus.
For the Love of Food
I think eating well is a form of self-respect, and that's evident in my recipes.
