Scrambling on how to celebrate your pops this Father’s Day? You’re in luck. Our very own Pete Overgaag shares his favorite recipes. Choose one (or all three) to prepare for your dad as a light entree or as sides if you’re expecting a lively bunch for dinner.
Each recipe features Pete’s Living Greens Butter Lettuce or Watercress. Both are rich in vitamins and nutrients. In fact, our Upland Cress and Organic Watercress are certified antioxidant superfoods. What’s a superfood you ask? It’s an extremely nutrient-dense food that, when eaten, is considered to be very beneficial for maintaining good health. Our cress products also contain as much vitamin C as an orange, more calcium than milk, and of course, high levels of magnesium, lutein, phosphorous, potassium, iron, beta-carotene, and vitamins A, B1, B6, K, and E! Our Living Butter Lettuce is no slouch either. It’s an excellent source of iron, vitamins A and C.
What are you waiting for? Pick up our products in your grocer’s fresh produce section and get cooking this Sunday in honor of Father’s Day!
