Chef Heather Lawrence says storing tomatoes at room temperature is best for freshness.  Make sure you keep the stem side down.   And steaming your broccoli is a great way to maintain the health benefits of one of nature’s most nutrient rich foods. At just 30 calories per serving, broccoli contains hunger-curbing fiber and polyphenols — antioxidants that detoxify cell-damaging chemicals in your body every time you eat up. Farm fresh Alabama lettuce is also on the menu this week. The Yukon gold potatoes have a natural buttery flavor. A little olive oil and salt and pepper is all they need. The zucchini squash, onion bulbs and watercress also hail from the fields of Alabama. Enjoy!
