"Beyond the Table," which addresses the farm-to-fork aspect of nutrition, consuming fresh, whole foods that are locally sourced and minimally processed.

Here are some nutrition tips aligned with this approach:

Prioritize Whole Foods

Base your meals around whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. These foods are rich in essential nutrients and are less processed than packaged foods.

Include a Variety of Colors

Aim to include a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables in your meals. Different colors indicate different nutrient profiles, so consuming a diverse range ensures you get a wide array of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Limit Processed Foods

Minimize your intake of highly processed foods, which often contain added sugars, unhealthy fats, and artificial ingredients. Instead, focus on whole, minimally processed foods to support optimal health.
