Are you tired of eating the SAME meals each week? With a busy schedule, a budget, or both, it may seem tough to incorporate new flavors onto your plate while still eating a healthy meal. In honor of Nutrition Month at the Center for Health & Wellbeing, Debbie Zimmerman, Food for Life Nutrition and Cooking Instructor, shares a how-to on preparing your own personalized Buddha Bowl – a highly diversified, plant-based nutritional meal – for you and your family. Zimmerman mixes and matches 10 different ingredients from five food categories — Grains, Starchy and Non-Starchy Vegetables, Legumes, Fruit and Salad dressing — while also discussing techniques for prepping and packaging weekly meals that fit seamlessly into your on-the-go lifestyle. Then, a simple dessert with assorted toppings is demonstrated to round out an easy, nutrient-packed menu for you and your whole family!

This program is presented by Debbie Zimmerman and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
