Tip of the Month
Vary your veggies! Did you know different colored vegetables have different health benefits? Eating different colored vegetables can help you get a full range of nutrients. Try planning your meals around what veggies you are eating. Fresh veggies are a great option, but canned and frozen vegetables can be just as good as fresh. If you get canned vegetables, look at the label and select options thay read "low sodium" or "no sodium added," and rinse the canned veggies when you get home! click here to read more about varying your veggies.
