Tuesday: Grains and Vegetables

Crystal started off the morning with a presentation about grains, the foundation of the Food Guide Pyramid. Whole grains are the ones to choose! Make half your grains whole--which we later proved was easy to do with our recipes and snack. Megan told the campers all about vegetables and how beneficial they are to include in your diet. You can never eat too many of them--and many of the campers enjoyed tasting a vegetable they had never tired before during our colorful tasting. Even our snack demo fit the theme--corn, freshly popped and tossed with a little Kosher salt, is a vegetable that provides a whole grain option in a tasty way.
