Spring into Wellness

By Ellie Wilson, MS, RDN, Senior Nutritionist, Price Chopper Supermarkets

As the April sun brightens our days, families get active with spring sports, walkers and runners get moving, and gardeners grab their tools. April 7th is World Health Day, and April 22nd is Earth Day – it’s the right month to get energized and explore ways to care for yourself and the Earth! Eating well can make reaching your spring wellness goals easier. Consider these plant-forward and family friendly meal ideas to get started:

  • Mix and match bagged salads – toss in grilled chicken, avocado and grape tomatoes for a fast fix.
  • Get grilling- add fruit chunks to favorite kabobs, pesto to grilled seafood, and sweet chili sauce to pork tenderloin.
  • Fresh veggie noodles add fun color and creative crunch as sides and salads

Find more inspiration in our stores and on our website. Enjoy some delicious food adventures as you spring into wellness!
