In Season Now

Eating In Season Tastes Better, Is Cheaper and Nutritional Value Is Greater

Mushrooms help lower cholesterol and enhance the immune system.  They contain a significant amount of B vitamins! Try porcini mushrooms in an Italian risotto.  Marinate portobello caps in olive oil and oregano, salt, pepper and grill 6 minutes on each side.  Remove from grill, top with Swiss cheese and make an incredible vegetarian burger! If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, make Superb Sautéed Mushrooms to top steaks, burgers or for a side bursting with umami flavor!

Tips for Teens

Not eating enough protein can result in muscle breakdown.  Excess intake will translate to excess calories that are stored as fat.  Eating a balanced diet including adequate calories and carbohydrates as well as healthy fats will ensure protein is being utilized properly.  For specific needs, you’ll need to consult a Registered Dietitian.

Save veggie scraps to make the best stock you have ever had!
Make your own beautiful stock by saving your veggie scraps, including onion peels, carrot tops, mushroom stalks, pea pods, celery root, and herb stems.  Add water,  salt and bring to a boil.  Lower heat to simmer, uncovered for 30 minutes.  Strain and discard solid bits.

Replace water with stock when making rice or pasta.  Homemade stock makes the best risotto!

Fast Fact

Around 100 trillion microorganisms live in your gut.  Their purpose is to regulate your immune system and protect you from infections.  Your job is to keep the good bacteria happy so they destroy bad bacteria. When you get sick, bad bacteria floods in and the good bacteria can’t destroy them fast enough. Yogurt intake has shown promising benefits for gut health for many years.  Benefits include reduction of incidence and duration of diarrhea, eradication of H. pylori, and prevention of colon cancer.  The probiotics in yogurt can help your gut to regain its natural, healthy balance. Try using a healthy dollop of plain yogurt in spicy dishes and use it to replace mayo in salad dressing.
