Peppers

Over the weekend at KPK, we inspected, washed, dried, cored, seeded, cut and sauteed over 60 lbs. of colorful sweet bell peppers on the grill. We love peppers : ). They're naturally sweet and just so delicious. Include them in your diet and eat as much colorful food as you possibly can. At KPK, we love to color your world with nature's beauty. The scoop:


COLORFUL FOOD is so important
for you. Did you know that red fruits and
vegetables like red peppers, tomatoes, beets
and cherries contain lycopene or
“anthocyanins” that may help reduce the risk
of several types of cancer? These powerful
antioxidants that help protect cells from
damage are also linked with keeping our
hearts healthy.
Orange/yellow fruits and vegetables are
usually colored by “carotenoids”. These foods
are reported to help reduce the risk of cancer
and heart disease and can help improve
immune system function.
Eat your GREENS and get “chlorophyll”. Some
greens like green peppers, spinach, peas and
cucumbers contain lutein. Lutein works with
“zeaxanthin” found in red peppers, corn,
grapes and egg yolks to keep your eyes
healthy. Together, these chemicals may help
reduce the risk of cataracts and age-related
macular degeneration which can lead to
blindness if untreated.
At “KPK At The Market”, we love presenting
vibrant, inspired and naturally beautiful food
on the main stage. We appreciate locally
grown produce and combine few quality
ingredients and simple methods to highlight
the vegetables and feed you the rainbow.

Enjoy something beautiful to eat every day. Even if it's something as simple as a perfect cherry or a sweet ear of corn.

 We look forward to preparing something 
colorful and delicious just for you on our next day out
 at the Frankfort Country Market:
