Spotlight Recipe: Gina's Turnip Greens
Turnip greens turned up in my CSA box last week, and I wasn’t sure what to do with them. This recipe was the answer -- tender sautéed greens in a tangy and spicy sauce, with just a bit of crunch. These greens are low in calories, high in vitamins A, C, K and folate and contain the antioxidant lutein. For this recipe, I cut back a little on the pecans, but even if you keep them all, there are only 170 calories and 11 grams of healthy fat per serving.

Spotlight Recipes: Granita
Dig in to these delicious frozen treats that are reminiscent of Italian ices. Granita’s are harder in texture than sorbets and contain less sugar. To make a granita, cook up a simple sugar (combo of sugar and water) and add flavors such as coffee, mint, juice and wine along with fruit. Once the mixture has begun to freeze (it takes about 3 hours), scrape the ice crystals every so often as they start to form. Once frozen, scoop and serve.
