When you walk in your kitchen, what do you see? How about inside the refrigerator? On the shelves and tables? A kitchen is the center of eating and the hearth of a home. What’s featured inside your kitchen is what guides your food choices.

Remember, knowledge is power. Getting educated about what you eat is very rewarding, because your choices do matter.
