Homegrown Vegetables

Here at 19 Bella, we feel that it is not only important to offer fresh ingredients for taste but also for health benefits!  Research has shown that homegrown vegetables contain more minerals and nutrients than per-packaged vegetables.  19 Bella obtains fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs from several local gardens for use in many of our dishes.

There has also been some research to show that you should eat a variety of colored vegetables.  In the article “Homegrown Vegetables Are the Most Nutritious” by Stephen Scott,  he states that in a study done “naturally grown vegetables have 84 minerals and elements that were identified as opposed to 8-10 in the same exact vegetables planted from seeds (from the same seed packet), but grown conventionally with the standard chemical fertilizers and pesticides/herbicides.”
