Each month Lummi Tribal member and NWIC employee Gail Julius shares a healthy recipe with readers in an effort to make eating healthy easy, and fun.
“Eating healthy is a personal decision and often a hard one to make when we feel crunched for time or overworked,” Julius said. “It is easy to lose sight of what we put into our bodies, but I have significantly changed my eating habits since joining the Traditional Plants & Foods Program team, and now I am asking my readers to challenge themselves. As we enter the summer season, shop at fresh produce stands and start incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your own recipes. Truly give your body a chance to benefit from them.”
This month, Julius shares a spin on a summer-time favorite: low-sugar strawberry rhubarb crunch.
