What is a Rutabaga?
A Rutabaga is a European plant of the cabbage family that produces this root.
Are Rutabagas and Turnips the same?
Both are root vegetables however they are not the same. The rutabaga is likely a hybrid of a cabbage and a turnip. Turnips are usually white-fleshed with white or white and purple skin. Rutabagas are sweeter with a large round, yellow fleshed root that is eaten like a vegetable.
Healthy Benefits of Rutabagas?
Rutabagas are an excellent source of potassium, calcium, magnesium, and vitamins E and C. They also contain a moderate amount of folate, a B vitamin that’s important for metabolism, protein synthesis, and DNA replication ( 2 ). Furthermore, rutabagas provide small amounts of phosphorus and selenium.

One of my favorite things about preschool….the two and half hours I have to myself. Most days I use that precious time to run, specifically run with friends. Over the last couple of years I have hardly been able to run with friends and oh how my soul has missed it. This week we hit the trails and saw colors exploding all over the mountainside. Gorgeous!
