Most of our lives we have lived to eat – now we must begin to eat to live, says GBRC Program Coordinator Garet Fitzpatrick. The new American plate should have smaller portions of high fat and highly processed foods. People will discover many healthy benefits gained from eating whole food by gradually adding more vegetables, fruits, grains and legumes to their daily menu. Presenter Donna Krug, family and consumer science agent at the Barton County Extension, will have food samples and recipes.
