Watching what we eat can help trim our waistlines, but the benefits of a plant-based diet extend far beyond belt size. Fruits and vegetables are so powerfully nutritious that they can reduce the risk of certain developing cancers, heart disease, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and kidney stones. Try these healthy and tasty Blue Zones inspired recipes from some of our favorite local chefs.
When healthy food tastes great, better food choices are irresistible. But how do you find better choices when eating out? Easy! There are dozens of Blue Zones Project Approved™ restaurants all over town that offer delicious Blue Zones inspired menu items. View our Restaurant Guide and learn more on our YouTube page.
Blue Zones Project is a community-wide well-being improvement initiative that helps make healthy choices easier for everyone in Fort Worth. When our entire community participates, the small changes contribute huge benefits for all of us: lowered healthcare costs, improved productivity, and a higher quality of life.
We’ll send you details on local events and resources that support the Power 9 principles.
