KOIN 6 News’s Kohr Harlan joined PCF to make some delicious and nutritious vegetable-based meals to kick off healthy eating for the new year. PCF is proud to be the go-to distributor of fresh quality produce for over 45 years servicing our northwest restaurants, grocery stores, schools, healthcare, cruise lines, foodbanks, and anywhere that values farm to family products.

Don’t forget the power of produce in your diet and on your plate!

  • Local produce does not undergo processing and freezing to preserve its shelf life, which means no pesky preservatives like those found in lots of processed foods. Because most of our produce is directly from local farms, it arrives fresh and packed with nutrients and does not lose its quality and nutritional value.
  • Root vegetables are heart healthy foods that are high in fiber and antioxidants, and help prevent inflammation and lowers cholesterol.
  • Vegetables and fruits are good sources of vitamins and minerals, low in calories and rich in dietary fiber. Eating more fruits and vegetables may help you cut back on higher calorie foods, such as meat, cheese, and snack foods.
