Pumpkin Brown Rice Risotto
Want a creative way to use the canned pumpkin puree lining the supermarket shelves this time of year? This recipe is sweet, savory, and packed with vitamin A for a nutritious holiday side dish. Using brown rice increases the protein and fiber content, and you can add unsalted black beans on top to make it into a meal!

Healthy Eating Tips
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!
Concerned about your cholesterol? Watch out for saturated fat! Saturated fat is commonly found in animal products. Choose lean meats and low fat dairy. Read food labels, and try to buy and eat foods with less than 2 grams saturated fat per serving.
