Buying vegetables that are in-season are great for your dress size and your budget. Endive, which is closely related to the chicory family, is a tasty fall vegetable that you can prepare raw or cooked. These leafy greens are packed with vitamins A, C, and beta-carotene. Endive has a crisp, clean taste that complements both savory and sweet dishes. Dr Shillingford’s lap band surgery practice in Fort Lauderdale believes in enjoying vegetables for good health. In Fort Lauderdale we have many green and farmer markets to enjoy a healthy lifestyle post lap band surgery.
Going into the holiday season, we are always seeking healthy snacks to satisfy that persistent sweet tooth. This simple endive salad is the perfect, light sweet treat that promises to be forgiving on that dress size you’ve worked so hard to maintain.
