What the color of a fruit or veggie says about its phytonutrients

Hosted by

If you visit the Santa Barbara Farmers Market on certain Saturdays, you may notice new cooking demos taking place. Sometimes it’s a local chef teaching you how to cook a popular dish from the restaurant. Other times, it’s a farmer or health expert talking about the nutritional magic behind certain fruits and veggies. Our market host met up with a dietician from Sansum Clinic who just finished teaching a demo about how to make summer salsa and why phytonutrients are important to your health.
