Bigelow Tea Gets Its Serving of Fruits and Veggies This Month!

btwed

June is National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month, and Bigelow Tea wants to make certain we’re eating them regularly. With its new MyPlate icon, the USDA recommends having fruits and vegetables fill half our dishes at every meal or occasion. That’s hefty real estate! So, in honor of this month, Bigelow Tea recommends two salad dishes that incorporate different fruits and veggies. Here’s how to make them.
