In our Healthy Teachers workshop we talk about making the small changes that are right for you and your lifestyle. A great place to start is with our Healthy Eating Principles. Three simple ways to pack in all the good stuff our bodies need. This month, we are sharing a recipe based on each principle: eat a rainbow of color, eat leafy greens first and eat as close to nature as possible.

Rainbow Roll Ups with Peanut Sauce make eating a rainbow of color especially tasty! If you follow our Healthy Eating Principles, you know that the color of foods indicates the nutrients found in them. Adding a variety of colors to our plate ensures we get the nutrients our bodies need to stay healthy. In this feature recipe, we use swiss chard leaves like a tortilla, wrapping up colorful veggies like a burrito. This is a great time to use up whatever fresh produce you have on hand. We’ve listed a few suggestions, but experiment with what’s in season.
Feed the future! Our experience in countless schools has shown that when kids have a choice, they choose fresh veggies (no, really!). Help us make more school gardens and salad bars a reality by donating today.
