Sara Turnasella, RDN In-store dietitian from ShopRite of Patchogue
Sara encouraged the health benefits of eating seasonally. Winter squashes provide healthy carbs adding grains and pumpkin seeds to a winter salad increase proteins.
In addition and importantly when using garlic the key to unlocking garlic’s health benefits is mincing or pressing it and allowing it to sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes so that the enzyme reaction can happen which produces the valued allicin..
This was Sara’s second presentation to us . She is available at the ShopRite store in Patchogue for consultations. Shop Rite is the only store that provides an in-store dietitian.
