SNAP to Market
Need some more prep tips for your produce? Follow these tips to make the most of your market purchases this weekend:
Full Steam Ahead - According to the American Heart Association, steaming vegetables is a healthy choice in meal preparation. If you choose to add oils, make sure they are low in saturated fats.
Sharing Is Not Always Caring - When it comes to sharing utensils and surfaces between different foods! Before preparing fruits and vegetables clean all surfaces and utensils after cutting raw meat, poultry, or seafood.
Don't Always Peel Your Vegetables - Most vegetables contain fiber in their peel or skin. For example, a baked potato with the skin left on has twice the amount of fiber as a peeled potato. In fact, cooking potatoes with the skin still on allows them to absorb more nutrients, even if you peel them after!
