Well, National Nutrition Month is over. We sure had a lot of fun celebrating this year. What did you do for National Nutrition Month?
One of our favorite celebrations was our free poster contest, which we ran every week on our Facebook page. Each week we asked a question we were dying to the know the answer to, and each week we picked a winning post and gave away a new poster. What fun!
Want to see who won each poster? Let's take a look at each contest question...
Week #1: What is your favorite vegetable?
And the winner is: Marsha Allen
Here's what she said: My favorite vegetable is asparagus.
Want to try asparagus for yourself? Or recommend it to a client? Here are my top 5 favorite asparagus recipes -- for free!

- Farmer's Market Meal
- MyPlate on the Grill
- Oven-Fried Fish Dinner
- Quick Toaster-Oven Asparagus
And the winner is: Carlita Mae
Here's what she said: Whole grain pad Thai with chicken and veggies.
We love the idea of adding whole grains to Pad Thai. For some fun -- and free! -- whole grain recipes, check out the options below...
- Bread Machine Pizza
- Curry Cashew Chicken
- Holiday Rice Salad
- Sicilian Pasta Primavera
- Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oatmeal with Apples and Cherries
And the winner is: Kathleen Lau
Here's what she said: Cooking with my fancy new spiralizer!
A spiralizer helps you slice vegetables very thinly, which makes it easy to turn them into pasta-like noodles. Simply feed the veggie into the spiralizer, and out come beautiful strands that you can use however you'd like. Spiralizing works best with firm fruits and vegetables that aren't hollow and which don't have a tough core. Think zucchini, carrots, sweet potatoes, summer squash, etc.
Week #4: What Resource Would Make Your Life Easier?
And the winner is: You!
Or it could be! At this point, we don't have any entries in the contest, so we've decided to extend it. Let us know what resource would make your life easier and you could win a free Nutrition from A-Z poster. What are you waiting for? Head over to Facebook and enter the contest today! Winners will be selected by Thursday, April 9th.
