For many of us living busy lives, eating often becomes routine. We get stuck making the same recipes and buying the same foods week after week. Meal planning becomes boring.
When you walk into the produce section at the grocery store, you can see a rainbow of foods. Why not be adventurous and add color and variety to your meals? Try something new to make mealtime more exciting.
Check out our video for some tips for eating a rainbow of produce.
Trying new things can be intimidating, though. Many fruits and vegetables can be difficult to open. You have to crack, break, strip, smash and peel them in a certain way.
Health educator Katie Johnson demonstrated how to get into several fruits and vegetables during a Facebook Live event Thursday, Feb. 9. She demonstrate opening the produce and share some fun facts about these items: avocado, blood oranges, coconut, dragon fruit, garlic, jicama, kale, kiwi, pineapple, pomegranate, rainbow swiss chard and tomatillos. You can find the video on our Facebook page.
