    The holiday season is an explosion of celebrations with food at the very center. With all that food, we still may find ourselves lacking essentials like fiber and the colorful vegetables and fruits that bring us a plethora of antioxidant-rich phytonutrients, micronutrients, vitamins and minerals crucial to our health. Click the link for a collection of easy-to-make dishes to bring lightness and deep nutrition to your plate between parties and all the desserts that seem to find their way to us over the holidays. This will support your body’s ability to balance all the stress and festivities. Read More.


    Nutrition counseling services are a resource available at no cost to all SU students, staff and faculty. Call to arrange a private and confidential session. Stop by our website and make an appointment with University Dietitian Terry Passano, RDN, LDN, CLT today!

    We’d love to hear from our readers! Are there nutrition questions you have or subjects related to nutrition you would like to learn more about? Email your questions, suggestions, and inquiries to for publication in our next issue of The Zest.
