Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM



In the US, it’s recommended to eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. But according to the CDC, only 10% of American adults reach those recommendations. Most people know eating fruits and vegetables is good for our health, so why are we struggling so much to eat our 5 servings? Truth be told, sometimes fruits and veggies can be boring. Without the right seasonings and cooking methods, they can fall flat. Not to mention, preparing produce can be time consuming and inconvenient. Does that mean you should give up on them all together? Absolutely not! That’s why our registered dietitians came together to develop this seminar with new and exciting ideas for making fruits and veggies tastier and more convenient. Learn how you can get the benefits of these nutritious plants without compromising on time or flavor!
