Video Librarian reviews Nutrition Starts Here: Smart Eating on a Budget

Nutrition Starts Here Smart Eating on a BudgetWe are thrilled with Video Librarian’s latest review of one of our new video releases…

Nutrition Starts Here: Smart Eating on a Budget ***

(2015) 19 min. DVD: $79.95 (downloadable teacher’s guide available). Learning ZoneXpress. PPR. Closed captioned.

Hosted by chef Marshall O’Brien, Nutrition Starts Here features bite-sized (sorry) vignettes showcasing nutritious food choices and strategies for taking control of what you eat. In the longest segment, “Simple, Tasty Slow Cooker Meals,” O’Brien shows viewers how to toss in a few simple ingredients and let a crockpot do the heavy lifting, while also offering food safety tips (particularly important if your dish starts with raw ingredients like chicken) and advice on testing appliances for proper temperatures to ensure safe meal preparation. “Tasty Whole Grains” looks at the nutritional differences between whole grains and refined grains, while “Understanding Portion Sizes” and “Label Reading” go together like salt and pepper—helping viewers determine how much food to put on their plates, and demystifying the complexities of product labels. While the program could have delved deeper into the “budget” part of its title, this is a solid introduction, overall, to making healthier eating choices. Recommended. Aud: J, H, P. (C. Block)
