Healthy Helpings



Eating well is one of the best ways to stay healthy, and Florida’s farms are filled with fresh foods that are good for your heart, your brain and your wellbeing. To help you learn which foods are best for you and taste great together, we collaborated with the experts at AdventHealth to produce Healthy Helpings, a video series shot on location at Lake Meadow Naturals (their farm store is pictured above) and hosted by our own Katie Farmand.

Healthy Helpings pairs local chefs with AdventHealth physicians to cook a healthy recipe and share tips for eating well. Grab the recipe, tune in to the video and follow along with the pros and cook an easy, delicious dish that you – and your body – will love.
