Arugula to Fight the Holiday Bloat


Arugula is a bright cruciferous green with a bit of a powerful kick to it. As a cruciferous, it provides amazing support to the gut. It’s rich in prebiotics, which help feed the good bacteria and supports healthy digestion. Arugula is also extremely heart-healthy. Its high nitrate content helps support healthy blood pressure levels and promotes cardiovascular health. I’m not making any judgments here but I feel like a food item that helps blood pressure levels during the family holidays could be heaven-sent. I’m just saying!

It’s also extremely high in calcium, potassium, folate, and vitamins C, K, and A for immune health (fighting those winter colds!) and support. What’s great is arugula has a light peppery taste so it can be added to so many recipes: salads, of course, but also breakfast quiches, tacos, appetizers, sandwiches, etc!

So where can you get some of the best tasting arugula around? Woodside Farms! Lucky for you, greens love this time of year - cool temps and fewer pests. And in addition to arugula, we’ll have many other greens cut, washed, and bagged, ready for your family’s dinner table at this month’s pop-up market and Brunch in the Barn event. We’ll have our usual winter farm stand (mostly greens) along with ticketed hot brunch items, some beverages, donuts, and Woodside Swag! Sip a mimosa while you shop - this is a no-judgment zone!

For more information check out our website.

We hope to see you there!
