Foodie Friday: Apples

written by Mitzi Dulan, RD, America’s Nutrition Expert®

Apple picking has to be one of my most favorite fall family activities – it gets us all outside and together, we get to pick our own fruits, and enjoy a great day at the farm.  Plus, even if we end up picking a lot of apples, they’re a fruit that tends to keep longer […]

Foodie Friday: Squash

written by Mitzi Dulan, RD, America’s Nutrition Expert®

With the colder weather approaching, it’s time to shift our diets to take advantage of the seasonal vegetables – like squash!  They are a great source of vitamin A, and a very good source of vitamin C, potassium and dietary fiber.  Their tough exterior means they keep well for some time and the flesh is […]

Did you know that there’s a “food holiday” almost every day of the whole year?  Some of them are silly (National Food-on-a-stick Day?!), and some of them promote foods that I don’t think necessarily need more advertising (National Cheese Doodle Day?!), but some of them feature good old fruits and veggies!  Friday August 27th is […]
