“The Culinary Vegetable Institute,” says Maeve Webster, president of Menu Matters, “truly is innovative, playing an important role in the development of food service. Historically, they’ve focused more on fine dining and independent restauranteurs, so I’m excited to see how, at Roots, the focus is broadening to include the role that food manufacturers and national chain restaurants can play in cultivating healthier eating.”
How many of you remember being told this as a child: “No, you can’t have your dessert until you eat your vegetables”? If so, you’re not alone – and, if so, your parents clearly cared about your health and well-being, which is a blessing. And, better yet, it’s actually possible to eat foods that are bursting with sweetness and flavor that are also very good for your health!
