Program Highlight: Our Meals
Our meals program improves our clients' quality of life, health, and ability to perform daily activities. Along with lunch, dinner and a snack, we deliver a message reminding our sick neighbors that they are not alone in their struggle with life-threatening illness.
Brown Rice, Lentil, Roasted Red Pepper
This recipe is called a salad but it is actually more like a rice or bean side dish. The fresh parsley makes it taste light and fresh like a salad. Brown rice is a good source of fiber. Lentils are a good source of protein from plants. A diet high in fiber, high in plant protein and high in vegetables-just like this dish- can reduce your risk of breast cancer.
Healthy Eating Tips
Frozen or fresh? Frozen fruits and vegetables are just as nutritious and tend to be cheaper than fresh, especially when buying out of season produce! Be sure to buy frozen fruits and vegetables without added sauces, sugar, and salt.
Need an afternoon break? Coffee can wake you up, but then leave you tired again. Instead, grab a piece of fruit & a small handful of nuts and take a 5 minute walk& you'll be refreshed and full of long lasting energy!
