The National Institute on Aging advises us, "Different foods in each food group have different nutrients. Picking an assortment within every food group throughout the week will help you get many nutrients. For example, choose seafood instead of meat twice a week. The variety of foods will make your meals more interesting, too." EatFresh.org remind us of the importance of making sure our plate is colorful with a variety of fruits and vegetables, this is also a great resource to find new recipes to try!
EatFresh.org has come up with a Mini Course to "boost your nutrition, cooking and healthy living knowledge". Take this fun course to learn more ways you can eat healthy, save money, and cook easy, tasty meals.
