Welcome to Your Healthy Kitchen!

Your Healthy Kitchen is a series of brief, entertaining videos to help you learn how to prepare delicious, healthy, affordable dishes. Rita Carey Rubin, a Registered Dietician and Certified Diabetes Educator at YRMC, puts her chef training to work to demonstrate the best ways to choose, prepare and serve nourishing, flavorful meals.

Focusing on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and beans, Rita will take you step by step through the process, while sharing valuable tips along the way. Find the recipes here along with shopping tips, cost per meal and interesting nutrition information about the ingredients.

Rita will also take you into our community, to farmer’s markets, grocery stores, gardens, kitchens and farms to meet local folks who are growing and preparing fresh, healthy food. They’ll share their knowledge and experience on where to shop, how to choose the best produce and how to grow your own fruits and vegetables.

We encourage you to check back often, as we will be adding new episodes regularly. Thanks for joining us in Your Healthy Kitchen!
