Our Director of Client Services Brandy Brogan loves rhubarb, a low-calorie, colorful, and crisp summer vegetable that is as tasty as it is versatile. Use it in everything from pastries to sauces for a boost of fiber, vitamins B6, A and K as well as minerals like iron, copper, calcium, potassium and phosphorous. Or try this rendition of Brandy’s office treat for a morning or afternoon pick-me-up.
