- more scallion scape-y things!

I meant to ramble on in the menu sheet that comes with the meals about how great it is to eat root vegetables with their greens. In most (maybe all?) cases, edible greens (and some, like carrot greens, aren’t edible [OK, now someone is going to leave a comment saying they are. Give them to horses! They taste horrible!]) contain beneficial compounds that help to digest the (often very solid and mass-y) root vegetables that grow below ground. For example, beets are sometimes hard to digest for some people, but eating beets with beet greens can help because they are slightly bitter and thus help to stimulate digestive juices.
Ah, mother nature! Always helping us out–if we let her.
