Earth Day / Healthy Eating
Earth Day, traditionally celebrated by the United Nations on the spring equinox, became a U.S. national holiday proclaimed by Senators Gaylord Nelson and John McConnell on April 22, 1970. It is a time to celebrate our planet, and all the life giving natural resources and beauty that the Earth provides and which we too often take for granted. Joining Dr. DeSilva with some healthy and GREEN food alternatives for your Earth Day Dinner is Theresa Marquez!
