15 new recipes featuring grapes from California, tips for healthy eating and entertaining
FRESNO, Calif., Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new video series, starring five of the most recognized registered dietitians in the country, debuts with 15 new regionally inspired recipes featuring grapes from California, plus tips for healthy eating and entertaining.
Shot in each dietitian's hometown, the videos invite viewers into the kitchen to see the ease with which grapes from California can be used to add a punch of flavor, texture, color and health to meals and snacks. "From yogurt power bowls with California grapes to grape sushi rolls to raw root vegetable and grape salads the recipes are new, diverse, and delicious," said Jeff Cardinale, commission vice president of communications. "And the videos show the many ways grapes from California are a simple, healthy, tasty addition to meals, snacks; truly one ingredient that can change everything."
Cardinale noted that, grapes of every color contain a variety of antioxidants and other polyphenols, natural components in grapes that may contribute to a healthy heart. And, with just 90 calories, no fat, no cholesterol and virtually no sodium in a ¾ cup serving of grapes, you can feel good about mixing grapes into just about any dish or eating them one by one. Apart from being a natural source of beneficial antioxidants, grapes also contain potassium and are a good source of vitamin K, which plays a role in helping blood to clot.
