What is your favorite leafy green vegetable? What do you grab at the store when you have a taste for greens or salad? Spinach, romaine, or mixed baby greens? Recently, Steps4Health gave two "Healthy Greens" food demonstrations. People were interested in talking about the food they eat and food they want to try. As people passed my display table, I noticed some had already chosen bunches of greens to make a salad, or to add to their main course meal they were planning later that day.
People asked me many general questions. Overall, some of the questions were how, when, and where to grow greens, preparation tips, seasonings, cooking techniques, whether or how greens fit into certain diets - Paleo, Body Ecology, or gluten-free, or diabetic diets. People shared with me their favorite greens, I distributed samples of swiss chard, and general information comparing the taste and nutrition to other green vegetables. Eager to do the next presentation!
Steps4Health offers SWISH, a food demonstration on healthy greens.
