5 Healthy Recipes to Make With Pride

June marks the anniversary of LGBTQI+ Pride traditions. The first Pride march was held in 1970 in New York City on the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising when protesters rioted for six days fighting for the freedom to be open about sexual orientation in public without fear of arrest.  Today, the White House says, “This month, we remind the LGBTQI+ community that they are loved and cherished.  My Administration sees you for who you are — deserving of dignity, respect, and support.” With that sentiment in mind, we are celebrating the diversity and vibrancy that Pride Month stands for.

To start, we are filling our plates with extra color in solidarity and support of LGBTQI+ rights and community. We want you to Eat Empowered. Filling your plate with a vibrant, diverse array of fresh fruits and vegetables has countless, healthy body benefits. A diet stacked with antioxidant-rich foods has been found to lower your risk of certain cancers, while also boosting your heart, brain and skin health.
