Healthy Table

Get more fruits and vegetables in your meals

Try to get more fruits and vegetables into your daily meals on a budget.  Here are a few tips:

  • Shop and chop: Buy fresh, in-season produce and chop immediately yourself. Store in the refrigerator so you can throw vegetables in a bowl for the same convenience as pre-chopped packages at a much lower cost.
  • Sacks and packs: Buy produce in bulk for a cost-efficient trip. Make double the dish and freeze half for an ultra-convenient dish down the road.
  • Multiply and divide: Prepare dinner meals (casseroles, pasta dishes and soups) by doubling the vegetables and reducing the meat, as vegetables are often less expensive. Add beans for extra low-cost protein.

Healthy Table offers free nutrition information, education, counseling, screening and more. Healthy Table is available for individual sessions, group presentations, health fairs and other health-related activities. We are located in Birck Hall, Room 230. For appointments, call (630) 829-6518 or “like” and message us on Facebook at Healthy Table at Benedictine University. You can also contact us at healthytable.benu14@gmail.com.
