FOWC with Fandango — Root

FOWCWelcome to November 25, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “root.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.

    I use root ginger in my sweet sauces as it’s much better than the powdered spice variety.

      The above listing doesn’t include rutabagas, which I like (and much more).

      Brassica spp. (rutabaga and turnip)

      From going to the link for brassica, I see these are in another grouping that is not specifically root vegetables.

        Oops; my mistake rutabagas were last on the first list:

        13. Rutabaga

        Rutabagas are root vegetables that belong to the mustard family and are commonly cultivated for their edible leaves and roots.

        Each serving of rutabagas supplies plenty of vitamin C, potassium and manganese along with disease-fighting antioxidants (…).

        Rutabagas are also a good source of fiber, which can help support your digestive health and lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels (…).

        They also provide glucosinolates, sulfur-containing compounds that are commonly found in cruciferous vegetables that may help protect against cancer cell development and growth and prevent oxidative stress (…).
