March is National Nutrition Month!

March is National Nutrition  Month and this year’s theme is “Eat Right with Color”. Growing up, I always heard that the more color you have on your plate, the more nutritious and balanced your meal was. Turns out Mom was right!

Try making a Rainbow Fruit Salad: Combine in a bowl: 1 mango, peeled, pitted and cubed, 1 cup blueberries or red grapes, 1 cup melon cubed, 1 banana sliced and 1/2 cup orange juice. Pour the juice over the fruit and stir. Serve at room temperature and enjoy with three more friends (the recipe serves 4).
