#EatYourFruitsAndVeggies Day 2

Happy 4th of July! How grateful I am for those that gave their lives so we could live in this free country.

I love spending time with friends and family. With all the family get togethers, excitement, activities, potlucks and BBQs across the country, we can use MyPlate.gov’s visual to build our plate when choosing foods to eat.

But you don’t have to just limit your fruits and vegetables to just half the plate. Dig in!

Be smart, and enjoy the holiday with friends and family while still nourishing your body. Spending quality time with them is the most important part.
