Powerhouse Vegetable Box
The complexity and healing power of vegetables can not be underestimated. That’s why we created the Powerhouse Vegetable Box. This box features vegetables from the CDC Powerhouse Vegetable list that are known to be high in vitamins and minerals which support health. Numerous studies have shown to be beneficial in prevention and as part of a treatment strategy for chronic health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
Our Powerhouse Vegetable Box is designed to provide you with a wide variety of seasonal freshly picked vegetables known to be high in vitamins and minerals. This box provides you with “Food as Medicine” to help support you on your wellness journey whether you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle or are currently using nutrient dense foods as part of your treatment plan.

You may have noticed your lettuce and greens look and feel a little different. That's because we have moved them indoors to our greenhouse "still soil grown" to protect them from the Ohio elements. They have the same great flavor and nutrients but are a little less sturdy. Hope you enjoy them just the same!
Your box will include a variety of Powerhouse, nutrient-dense vegetables, depending on the season, to help reduce the risk of chronic disease. As a result of our regenerative farming practices, we have found that our products often contain more minerals than the USDA average! The vegetables in this specially curated box are rich in potassium, fiber, protein, calcium, iron, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, zinc, and vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and K.
Green leafy vegetables are full of vitamins (A, B vitamins (including folate), C,E,K) and minerals (Mg, K, Ca) and are low on the glycemic index. Green leafy vegetables are also a source of nitrates which when eaten over time may help reduce blood pressure. They also contain antioxidants (ex. carotenoids) which contribute to their benefits for cancer prevention. Studies have shown consuming 2 to 3 servings of green leafy vegetables per week may reduce the risk of stomach, skin, and breast cancer.
Orange vegetables (like carrots, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes) are a good source of Vitamin A (beta-carotene) and can help reduce inflammation, support brain health, eye health, immune health, and reproductive health. Cooking many orange vegetables along with adding fat such as high polyphenol olive oil, pasture-raised butter, or coconut oil increases the amount of beta-carotene that your body can absorb. Yellow vegetables (like summer squash and yellow peppers) are anti-inflammatory and may help with reducing inflammation, and promoting eye, immune, and heart health.
Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, bok choy, and cabbage contain sulforaphane, which is a sulfur-rich compound that has been shown to provide a number of health benefits. Potential benefits include anticancer properties, heart health, and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. Click here to read more about sulforaphane and its healthy properties.
The best way to consume nutrients is through fresh vegetables. We’ve curated a variety of recipes for you to enjoy these nutrient-dense vegetables at home.
At The Chef’s Garden nutrition goes hand-in-hand with flavorful, quality vegetables. It is so important that in 2019, we opened an on-site agricultural research facility. We study how to maximize the flavor, color, and nutrition of our vegetables in order to bring the highest quality to your door.
