Eat Right for You, and Baby, too!

Let the countdown begin! The 40 weeks of pregnancy will go quickly – so start now taking steps to build a healthy foundation for you and your baby.

Put Spring in Your Step and on Your Plate!

Most fruits and vegetables are now available year round, but many are at their true peak of season from March to early June. Produce enjoyed in season is at peak flavor and nutrition – so tasty "cooking" may mean just a quick rinse under the faucet and a slice onto the plate! Seasonal produce typically comes at a lower cost, too.

Smoky Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

Smoky Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

The MIND diet encourages eating at least three servings of beans a week – and, this unique recipe can help you add beans to your plate – in more ways than one! For example, crunch on these savory chickpeas along with a piece of fruit, string cheese or handful of grape tomatoes for a satisfying snack. Try them in place of croutons to top your salad for a boost of protein and fiber - even serve at your next BBQ get-together for a tasty (and healthy!) conversation-starter!
