SouthCoast Health Nutritionist, Rebekah Laurance Featured on WTOC's Morning Break for National Nutrition Month

Tuesday, March 22, 2022


SouthCoast Health nutritionist, Rebekah Laurence was featured on WTOC's Morning Break to share tips for eating healthy in celebration of March's National Nutrition Month. This important awareness month reminds us of the importance of a balanced diet and exercise. This year's theme is "Celebrate a World of Flavors," which encourages us to try flavors from cultures around the world. It is a tasty way to nourish ourselves and appreciate diversity in meals from cultures across the globe.

Laurence also joined the Morning Break team in their kitchen to provide an on-air cooking demonstration for gazpacho. This soup is made of raw, blended vegetables in Spanish and Portuguese homes. It is served cold, which would be a great dish to try in our region, especially during the warmer months of the year.

The recipe details for the gazpacho are listed below:

  • 2 pounds of Tomatoes, seeds removed
