Global Spotlight on France


This our cooking classes are making a classic breakfast dish with a creative twist! Our omelets incorporate potatoesswiss chard, and broccoli, and our fruit salad is made using seasonal fruits, including pears and apples.The dark green vegetables (chard and broccoli) pack in lots of iron, which is an important part of hemoglobin, carrying oxygen in the blood. Apples and pears pack many vitamins, including Vitamin C, key for our bones, blood vessels, and skin! All of these wonderful fruits and veggies are also important sources of fiber.

Following along with our recipes and want to join in on the fun? Butter Beans is delighted to announce a special holiday cooking series at Asphalt Green, celebrating healthy, seasonal cooking as a key component of an active lifestyle!
