Over the weekend, ten of my co-workers and I visited with a nutritionist at one of our local grocery stores. I’ve been really impressed that Martin’s Foods has a full-time nutritionist in six of their stores.
The goal in our meeting with Lisa was to help us find easy ways to stick to the Full Plate Diet, which encourages participants to eat at least 40 grams of fiber per day. According to the American Heart Association, the average American gets less than 15 grams per day. She gave us so much great information that I’m sharing it with you over a couple of days. Today, I’m focusing on fruits and vegetables.
