Fruits & Veggies

Stretching Tips for your Fruit & Vegetable Budget -
September is Fruit & Veggies - More Matters month. I've been doing some research in order to write an article for work spotlighting this National Health Observance. If you've never visited the CDC's website focusing on fruits and vegetables, you should! It is a very cool website. Not only does it outline many of the benefits of fruits & veggies, but it also has a fruit & vegetable of the month, information on what counts as a cup of fruits and veggies, tips, recipes, and interactive tools like "analyze my plate" to get a nutritional analysis of your meals and "recipe remix" to see how you can give your all-time favorites a healthy new twist while reducing fat, calories and sodium.

Candice, Maren, Amanda, Emma, and Mom - I think we should try and cook with the fruit & veggie of the month...starting right now with Celery & Fennel, and Cactus. You in?
