Half-Plate Healthy Event

Normally, you would NEVER see me in a Wegmans on a Saturday - it's pure madness and chaos! And if I didn't have a Risser family event on Saturday, I'd for sure go to this. Wegmans is having a "Half-Plate Healthy Event" where they have about 10 stations set up offering samples of different healthy foods. Wegmans is amazing when it comes to pushing nutrition and healthy living, and one of their main campaigns is this "half-plate healthy" - fill up half of your plate with fruits, vegetables and salad, and then fill your other half with whatever you want. It's a pretty novel idea - most people don't get enough of the "good stuff" in their daily diet - and it's a flexible eating challenge that lets you choose your own food (versus so many diets out there).

So, from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. (and for FREE!), check out a Wegmans near you. Here's what they'll have:
  • Veggie Station: Swiss Chard and Beet Greens
  • Produce: Rainbow of fruits topped with yogurt dip
  • Bakery: Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Whole Grain Naan topped with Bruschetta and Cheese
  • Prepared Foods: $6 meals
  • General Merchandise: Half-Plate Healthy Kids Coloring Contest
  • Nature’s Marketplace: CLIF Kid ZBar & Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Organic Apple Juice
  • Frozen: Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Special Blends Broccoli, Cauliflower & Pine Nuts
  • Grocery: Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Fruit Cups
  • Seafood: Shrimp Scampi
  • Pharmacy: Blood Pressure Awareness and Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Juice Blends
Free food that's good for you? Man, I would be ALL over that! On another note, wonder if Wegmans would pay me to market their chain? I'm beginning to do a lot of that on here... ;-)
