Beets

While starting with beets that are raw and unprepped may be a bit of a challenge, it's nothing you can't handle. And the payoff at the end is totally worth it, we promise. Talk to your local farmers' market vendor about the best way to prep the heart-healthy veg. Then get cooking!

Blueberries

These fall favorites taste nice, and don't they look pretty? For a good-for-you snack, nothing beats blueberries straight from the carton, especially when they're bought right off the farm. Mix these plump berries into the batter for healthified pancakes, throw some onto your oatmeal, or add them to yogurt. Or just eat 'em like candy. Yum.
