Why does Cookin Greens love Dietitians of Canada?

Cooking’ Greens loves Dietitians of Canada because dietitians love dark, leafy greens!


The organization recommends that:

A healthy, balanced diet rich in vegetables and fruit can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and some types of cancer, and also provides a solid foundation for long-term weight control. This food group is a good source of carbohydrates, vitamins A and C, potassium, magnesium, folate, and fibre. To get the most from your fruits and vegetables:

  • Eat at least one dark green vegetable (such as broccoli, green peas or beans, spinach, or romaine lettuce) and one orange vegetable (such as carrots, sweet potato or squash) each day.
  • Choose vegetables and fruit prepared with little or no added fat.
  • Choose vegetables and fruit more often than juice.
