National Nutrition Month: "Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day"

Meatless Mondays

  • March 18: braised kale and julienne peppers with toasted quinoa
  • March 25: oven roasted squash and carrots with multi-grain pilaf

Share a photo of a recipe of a vegetarian meal. Send images to before 5 p.m. March 29 and be eligible to win a copy of physician and nutrition expert Ann Kultze’s book, Eat Right For Life.
