Nutritioulicious Menu Plan Monday featuring recipes @memeinge @alannam6 @foodiephysician @holleygrainger

Hope everyone had a great weekend! In case you missed it, Saturday was the annual celebration of Food Day. I joined a Food Day Blogger Takeover and shared my thoughts on making fruits and vegetables center stage. I’d love to hear how you you work towards a greener diet, so please share your thoughts with me!

Encourage kids to make fruits and veggies center stage on their plates by keeping it delicious and fun. @jlevinsonRD

And if you’re trying to get more seasonal produce into your diet, be sure to check out my fall recipe roundup with over 45 RDN-approved recipes!
