National Nutrition Month

If you haven’t been yet celebrated, there’s still time! It’s National Nutrition Month! With New Year’s resolutions starting to take a dive and the weather heating up, this offers a special opportunity to spotlight some healthy eats.

Salads are a bit underrated in this category. We’ve all heard the negative terms for it, like rabbit food, for example. But there’s a variety of ways they could be used, such as nutritious addition as a side to a meal or even the main course itself. There are plenty of ways to dress up lettuce for a great meal. Veggies such as green peppers, onions, and mushrooms add to the flavor palette, while fruits like cranberries and mandarin oranges give it a sweet bite.

Use any of the following items to turn drab into delicious!
