In The Kitchen: Healthy And Sustainable Spring Food

Andrew Bustos from Precision on The Go, joined New Mexico Living to make a Smokey Chipotle Shrimp and Garden Veg Gazpacho and to talk about getting healthy this Spring.

The food you eat affects your mood, energy level, and your ability to be cognitive for the day.  When you feed your body you are feeding your brain, that’s why it is important to try nutrient-rich, vibrant and economical produce, such as fresh tomatoes, onion, garlic and squash.
