MUSC Dietetic Interns-March is National Nutrition Month

March 24-28: Asian Cuisine

Throughout the month on March the MUSC Dietetic Interns are featuring different cultures from around the world to showcase the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetic National Nutrition Months theme of Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right.

This week in March, the focus is on Asian cuisine. Check out the broadcast email for a video featuring MUSC’s own Shalini Kanukala as she speaks to her heritage and the food culture she knows best. On March 26, from 11 a.m. to 1p.m. in the Children’s Hospital lobby join us to learn about Asian cuisine, try a cultural dish, play trivia, and enter to win a $25 gift card from Lee Lee’s Hot Kitchen. Thursday Lunch and Learn series continues at the Urban Farm on March 27.

This week we will be showcasing seasonal, herbs and spices grown at the Farm. The events will take place Thursdays from 12:15-12:45 p.m. at the MUSC Urban Farm portico. In the event of adverse weather, the event will move to the portico of the Colbert Education Center and Library.

On March 28, the cafeterias will feature tofu vegetable stir fry with brown rice and glazed teriyaki chicken.

This is the last week to play Nutrition Trivia. Submit your answers to drop boxes located at both cafeteria’s point of sale register locations for a chance to win some exciting prizes.
