Personalize Your Plate

Join Wellness throughout the month of March as we celebrate the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ National Nutrition Month® with you. This year’s theme is “personalize your plate". Throughout the month of March, Wellness will be providing opportunities for you to optimize your health through nutrition by learning how to vary your diet, meal planning and cooking, as well as the importance of speaking with a nutrition professional. We will be offering everything from a live cook-along cooking demo, a community chat, videos, and a whole bunch more for you to learn how you can healthfully personalize your plate.

NICE CREAM is a healthy and simple way to bring whole fruits into your diet, you can eat it for breakfast, a snack, or dessert. Check out this video or article about how to make different flavors of this diary free alternative to ice cream.
