HOUSTON -

Houston is vegging out in March for National Nutrition Month. 


On Wednesday, February 26, at 11:30 a.m. at the City Hall Farmers Market, Houston Mayor Annise Parker is scheduled to declare March the official VegOut! with Recipe for Success Month.

The 30-Day “VegOut! Challenge” will encourage Houstonians to lead a healthier lifestyle by eating 30 different vegetables in 30 days.

Restaurants, grocery stores, schools and others are all joining the VegOut! Challenge.

“Starting with our Mayor, so many partners are lending a hand!” says Gracie Cavnar, founder and CEO of Recipe for Success Foundation. Grocery partners like HEB and Whole Foods will make finding thirty veggies easy peasy, and restaurants all over town, from gourmet to casual, plan veggie specials all month long. We look forward to the fun.”
