We all lead busy lives – long workdays, the stress of the weather, markets, and limited healthy, one-handed/transportation-friendly dining options, it’s easy to put health on the back burner. The “Food in the Field” program was designed to address the unique challenges of the ag community, including both farmers and their families, have during the busy planting and harvest seasons. The tips, tricks, and recipes shared by Hannah Guenther, Nebraska Extension Asst. Educator and Program Co-Founder, will leave you better prepared to deliver healthy food to the field or carpool.

This Workshop includes:

  • The basics of a healthy eating pattern and learn about small shifts to adapt meals you know and love 
  • Tips for improving food environments, reading a food label, and how to better plan ahead for busy seasons
  • How to prepare nutritious recipes that are field friendly and farmer approved using healthy food techniques, portion control, and helpful tips to make food portable
  • Cooking demonstration and tasting of a “Food in the Field” recipe
