Nutrition Minute

Nutrition Minute held once a week at the VRWC will offer quick tips on ways to maintain healthy eating habits.

Tuesday, July 26, 7 – 8 AM – Breakfast Using Seasonal Peaches

Top a slice of whole grain toast with a nut butter, sliced peaches, honey and cinnamon for a great start to a summer’s day.

Friday, August 5, 8:30 – 9:30AM – Juices the Costa Rican Way

Fresh fruits abound in Costa Rica and may combinations are blended to make special morning treats. Stop by and taste possibly a different taste for an early morning start for your day.

Wednesday, August 10, 12:30 – 1:30PM – Purple Reigns

Stop by and try this Vegetable Stir-Fry  using purple vegetables. Fruits and vegetables featuring a violet hue are loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants are man-made or natural substances that may prevent or delay some types of cell damage. There is good evidence that eating a diet with lots of vegetables and fruits is healthy and lowers risks of certain diseases. But it isn’t clear whether this is because of the antioxidants, something else in the foods, or other factors. NIH: National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health

Thursday, August 18, 11:30 AM – 12:30PM – Trending to Plant-Based

The US Dietary Guidelines encourage Americans to include more plant based proteins. Products continue to be more available with greater consumer appeal. Stop by and try a tortilla loaded with tofu,  vegetables, and delightful flavorings.

Thursday, August 25, 3-4PM  - Healthy Cooking in the Dorm

Learn tips for healthy, cheap, quick meals you can prepare right in the dorm.

Feel free to stop in for a minute or stay the whole time. Nutrition Minute is held in the lobby of the VRWC.
