ShopRite Hosts Wellness Booth at B’MORE HEALTHY EXPO
Baltimore, MD (February 24, 2015) – For the second year in a row, ShopRite is a sponsor of the Annual B’More Healthy Expo, which is scheduled for this Saturday, February 28th, 2015. Attendees at this year’s 6th annual event can visit the ShopRite booth for a one-on-one consultation with a ShopRite retail dietitian, who will be hosting demos and sampling of healthy recipes.
ShopRite dietitians Elisabeth D’Alto, RD and Angela Teague, RD will be on hand to engage and educate attendees on the benefits of a healthy diet and how to make a healthy meal plan more fun! Demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the day and will include:
* 5 Creative Ways to Prepare 5 Different Fruits - From pomegranate and avocado to pineapple, papaya, and mango. Five unique and easy ways to select, prepare, and eat these good-for-you but often intimidating fruits.
* Spruce Up Your Vegetable Platter - In addition to learning about the nutritional benefits of these produce items and showing them in their whole form, the dietitians will demonstrate the best way to choose fresh produce, how to prepare them and pair with delicious yet healthy dips for snacks on the go.
