One key dietary recommendation is to eat more fruits and vegetables each day to improve immune function and prevent heart disease and diabetes. When looking to guide your family to healthier snacks and meals or simply trying to mix up your at-home menu, success can be as simple as rethinking the ingredients you choose to use, including your favorite produce, such as grapes.<br /></p> <p>Fresh California grapes, for example, make for an ideal snack because they are tasty, healthy, hydrating and refreshing, but grapes can also be used to make good-for-you dishes that are also satisfying and delicious. Grapes of all colors – red, green and black – are a natural source of beneficial antioxidants and other polyphenols. Plus, they are naturally fat-free, cholesterol-free and contain virtually no sodium.</p> <p>Try recipes like Moroccan Grape and Grilled Chicken Bowls with Grape Vinaigrette, Spiced Chickpeas and Grapes with Yogurt, and Cauliflower Steaks with Grapes to pair heart-healthy grapes with other nutritious ingredients and add variety and fresh appeal in the kitchen.</p> <p>Visit <a href="https://www.globenewswire.com/Tracker?data=nedCCbQsrDpNSWZDftR4yqomoQk1mLQriU4b6MyhbQAxqAUDrdhcHUh8byMOXAocSlNyKLmWD8MVfUYM79KuTXf2uAIVS446FeAYOxVXv5k3NX_tLajYHsd07IOUql9v" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">GrapesFromCalifornia.com</a> for more nutritious family recipes.</p> <p>Moroccan Grape and Grilled Chicken Bowls with Grape Vinaigrette<br />Servings: 4</p> <table style="border-collapse: collapse; width:70%; border-collapse:collapse ;"> <tr> <td style="max-width:7%; width:7%; min-width:7%;">Couscous:</td> <td style="max-width:1%; width:1%; min-width:1%;"> </td> <td style="max-width:1%; width:1%; min-width:1%;"> </td> <td style="max-width:91%; width:91%; min-width:91%;"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td style="text-align: left ; vertical-align: middle; ">1</td> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td>cup Israeli couscous</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td style="text-align: left ; vertical-align: middle; ">2</td> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td>tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td style="text-align: left ; vertical-align: middle; ">1/2</td> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td>cup carrots, thinly sliced</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td style="text-align: left ; vertical-align: middle; ">1/2</td> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td>cup tomatoes, diced</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td style="text-align: left ; vertical-align: middle; ">1/2</td> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td>cup parsley, leaves only</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td style="text-align: left ; vertical-align: middle; ">1 1/2</td> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td>teaspoons ras el hanout (Moroccan spice blend)</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td style="text-align: left ; vertical-align: middle; ">1</td> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td>teaspoon salt</td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> </td> <td> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td>Chicken:</td> <td> </td> <td> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td style="text-align: left ; vertical-align: middle; ">2</td> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td>chicken breasts (8 ounces each)</td> </tr> <tr> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td style="text-align: left ; vertical-align: middle; ">1</td> <td style="text-align: right ; vertical-align: middle; "> </td> <td>tablespoon harissa ...</td></tr></table><p><a href=https://www.benzinga.com/pressreleases/20/06/g16160657/support-your-immune-system-with-grapes alt=Support Your Immune System with Grapes>Full story available on Benzinga.com</a></p> lifestyle Restaurants Press Releases General Tue, 02 Jun 2020 14:59:05 +0000 Globe Newswire 16160657 at https://www.benzinga.com Make a Commitment to More Family Meals https://www.benzinga.com/pressreleases/20/06/g16160445/make-a-commitment-to-more-family-meals <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="https://www.globenewswire.com/styles/gnw_nitf.css" /> <p>MISSION, Kan., June 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (Family Features) Spending moments together with loved ones carries obvious benefits like time to catch up and opportunities to bond, but sharing meals actually provides definitive value for families.

The results build on years of previous research studies to punctuate the creation of the Family Meals Movement, which encourages Americans to pledge to share one more family breakfast, lunch or dinner at home per week.</p> <p>Consider these notable findings from the study:</p> <ul type="disc"> <li>Family meals improve fruit and vegetable consumption. Studies show a positive relationship between family meal frequency and fruit and vegetable intake when examined separately, but also when fruit and vegetable intake are combined.</li> </ul> <ul type="disc"> <li>Family meals improve family dynamics. Nearly all the studies included in the systematic review and meta-analysis demonstrated a positive relationship between family meal frequency and measures of family functioning. Family functioning is defined as family connectedness, communication, expressiveness and problem-solving.</li> </ul> <p>"There are thousands of individual studies that examine the impact of family meals on nutrition and family behavior, but this meta-analysis looks at the relationship between family meal frequency and family functioning outcomes," said David Fikes, executive director of the FMI Foundation.
