One of the objectives of Go for Green 2.0 is to give diners more options.
“The best thing about 2.0 is that if you don’t want it, you don’t have to eat it, said Lisa Brefere, a certified executive chef with the Culinary Institute of America. “However, for people who want healthier choices, options have been added.”
Brefere added that incorporating good cooking procedures into the dining experience model is also a goal, and the new foods are not only healthy but taste delicious as well.
Hightower provided the following healthy food tips:
• Aim to fill half your plate with green-coded foods.
• Eat consistently to keep your energy up.
• Make nutrient-rich foods the easy choice at home and work.
