Welcome to Recipe of the Week, a feature of the Bergen County Department of Health Service. Be sure to look through the other categories for more easy, family friendly recipes.
Fruits and vegetables add color, flavor and texture to our plates, not to mention nutritional value. The almost unlimited number of varieties available to us provide interest and appeal. Look for fruits and vegetables in all forms - fresh, frozen, canned and dried!
Fruits and vegetables are naturally low in fat and sodium. Be sure to prepare them to take full advantage of these benefits. And remember, MyPlate, issued by the federal government, recommends that one-half of our plate should be fruits and vegetables!
