Chef Preston Hill and Dietitian Carrie Esper's Delicious and Nutritious Recipe of the Month
We're Celebrating March as *National Nutrition Month!
Broaden your food flavors in honor of National Nutrition Month! There are many delicious, fresh foods that don’t require seasoning. But, when it comes to lightening up recipes, it’s important to understand how to keep flavor while also reducing fat, sugar, or sodium. The addition of spices and herbs add flavor depth to dishes and contain health-promoting compounds. The golden spice Turmeric contains curcumin, a strong antioxidant which may reduce symptoms in rheumatoid arthritis suffers and may play a role in treating Alzheimer’s and depression.
