Every summer during camp we always encourage you to try new vegetables as part of your meals. In the spirit of “National Nutrition Month®”today we are sharing a delicious Tortilla Pizza Recipe that’s quick and delicious. It’s a perfect recipe to share with family and friends and it gives us the opportunity to experience with vegetables as toppings for our pizzas.
Here is a reminder of the Health Benefits of Vegetables:
  • Eating a diet rich in vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet may reduce risk for heart disease, including heart attack and stroke.
  • Eating a diet rich in some vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet may protect against certain types of cancers.
  • Diets rich in foods containing fiber, such as some vegetables and fruits, may reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
  • Eating vegetables and fruits rich in potassium as part of an overall healthy diet may lower blood pressure, and may also reduce the risk of developing kidney stones and help to decrease bone loss.
  • Eating foods such as vegetables that are lower in calories per cup instead of some other higher-calorie food may be useful in helping to lower calorie intake
