Fascination with food!

Fascination with food!

From our table to yours -
I enjoy food. I don’t just mean the daily consumption of meals and snacks. For me it is a fascination – okay maybe it is an obsession - in all things food: recipes, ingredients, taste, flavor and how food relates to our health. Indeed, the big idea that food is medicine. Here’s an example: a recent study indicates that a healthy diet not only reduces a person’s risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer but an eating style rich in fruit and vegetables can also have a positive impact on mental well-being. Really. All this from eating fruits and vegetables. Interesting how taking care of yourself impacts your overall happiness! Here are some easy ways to get more vegetables into your diet:
- top the protein with sautéed vegetables. Instead of topping cooked fish (or meat or poultry) with a sauce, use sautéed vegetables, such as peppers, onions and tomatoes.
- replace carbohydrates with vegetables. If you love cheesy mashed potatoes but not all the calories they deliver, replace some of the potatoes with vegetables, such as roasted broccoli.
- stock up on the salsa. This low-calorie condiment is long on flavor and fiber—and it packs a whole vegetable serving into every 1/2 cup.
