Healthy Table

Orange is the new black

Fall is here, but just because the weather is cooler does not mean your produce options have to suffer.  Here are some quick recipe ideas for three orange vegetables that are in season now:

  • Carrots: Carrots are a great snack. However, instead of dipping them in ranch dressing full of saturated fat, try using plain Greek yogurt and adding ranch dip seasoning to it. This is a great way to cut the fat and up the protein.
  • Sweet Potatoes: Sweet potatoes make a great side dish in place of other potatoes. Simply cut the sweet potatoes into strips and mix with salt and olive oil. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes and you have a delicious fry without the extra fat from frying them.
  • Pumpkin: Don't be afraid to use the whole pumpkin. Try mixing a scoop of canned pumpkin into your morning oatmeal. You can then mix in the seeds for some texture and protein. Bump the flavor up even more with some cinnamon and raisins for an energizing and delicious breakfast. 

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.
