29 Nov Power Foods: HEALTHY CONCORD GRAPE GUMMIES
This week’s power food is the Grape! Grapes can be consumed raw, in the form of sweet and salty salads and juices. Depending on the variety, grapes can be purple, red, black, pink, yellow or green. The green-colored variety is often referred to as white grapes. They can be cooked and used for the production of various desserts. Dried grapes (better known as raisins) are especially popular during winter, when fresh fruit is not available.Grapes are 80% water so make a good snack that’s low in calories. Wine grapes and table grapes are not identical. Table grapes, which are usually eaten raw, have thin skin and very few seeds. Over the years, several seedless varieties have been developed and are currently being sold in supermarkets. In contrast, wine grapes are thick-skinned and contain many seeds.
Grapes contain Vitamin K perhaps best known for its role in the blood clotting process. Often, when people hear the term “blood clot,” they might sometimes jump to the conclusion that a blood clot is bad. But there are many times when it is very important for our blood to clot. For example, blood clots are necessary to stop bleeding when our skin gets punctured or scrapped. This is why we call it SCAB POWER!
