National Nutrition Month continues at WakeMed. To celebrate, Café 3000 (on the Raleigh Campus) offered a “Create Your Own” Legume & Ancient Grain Salad. Hungry diners had the opportunity to create their own nutritious salads from a variety of wholesome toppings, including farro grain, wheat berries, bulgur, fruits, nuts, cheeses, tuna, chicken and tomatoes. Learn more about the health benefits of certain ancient grains, including farro, bulgur and wheat berries.
The cafeteria is also showcasing spices to highlight the practice of adding flavor instead of calories and/or sodium to everyday foods. One menu offering has been Lemon Herb Half Chicken with a Brussels Sprout & Kale Salad and Tarragon Honey Carrots. We shared the recipe for this healthy dish below (serves four).
