The happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic plays his nutrition game, Serve, Taste or Trash! with the vendors and patrons of Central Farm Market in Bethesda, MD. You might be surprised by the results. In the game, you’re given three choices of fruits and vegetables: a spaghetti squash, a Valencia tomato and Asian pear. You must decide which choice you’d serve, which one you’d taste and which one you’d trash.
Before you decide to “trash” a veggie and/or fruit for good, why not try to eat it raw? Raw veggies can be more appetizing than their cooked counterparts to people who aren’t crazy about vegetables. The flavors of raw veggies can be milder than those of cooked ones. And the texture is crispy, rather than mushy. Special guest, Kathy Gold RN, MSN, CDE, Director of Outreach and Education at the Diabetes Research & Wellness Foundation in Washington, DC helped to raise awareness for diabetes in a fun and glamorous new way.
Since 2009, Central Farm Markets have been providing residents with a place to buy the freshest produce, meats, dairy, seafood and bakery goods from over 50 top quality farmers and artisan food producers. Visit Central Farm Market’s website and facebook page.
