Concord Grapes & Your Health

I was sitting eating a bunch of Concord Grapes while innocently scrolling through Pinterest when I spotted this picture of...Concord Grapes! Out of curiosity I followed the link to Five Health Benefits, an article by Chatelaine Magazine (see link for further details).

1. Decrease blood pressure with concord grapes

2. Concord grapes are anti-inflammatory

3. Eat grapes to stay (mentally) sharp

4. Boost your immunity with concord grapes

5. Concord grapes maintain healthy breast tissue

I felt a lot better about my Pinterest session, I mean my eating of the grapes.

I received the grapes as part of my CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Weekly Fruit & Veggie Box. It's packed full of local/seasonal produce at a reasonable price. This helps me with my weekly grocery shopping and supporting local farmers. Anyone else do this?

They also shared with me a recipe for Grape Jelly, by Canadian Living...just in case these grapes are too sour on their own. 

Bon App├ętit!

That's so cool!
Wish they could do stuff like that health box in South Africa.

I have never heard of a fruit and veggie box. That is a great concept. I am usually disgusted by the lack of freshness in the produce section of my grocery store. I may check and see if we have something like that here. Have a great week!
