What's On
Your Plate?

A healthy plate and an active lifestyle can help reduce your risk for breast cancer.

What’s On Your Plate?

Pink Ribbon Produce and its produce partners want to help you meet the challenges of balancing your plate with a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables and an active lifestyle so you can make strides in the fight against breast cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends eating at least 2 ½ cups of fruits and vegetables each day to help lower cancer risk. These foods contain important vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and antioxidants and are usually low in calories. Choose produce with the most color – dark green, red, yellow, and orange – they have the most nutrients.

Check out our produce partners healthy options to help balance your plate!

About Pink Ribbon Produce

Pink Ribbon Produce, a cause-marketing in-store promotion now celebrating its eleventh year, continues to unite the produce industry in the fight against breast cancer. This program is designed to bring awareness through education and fundraising for continued breast cancer research. It has grown each year both in its reach of retail support and number of supplier sponsors. The fundraising efforts of Pink Ribbon Produce support breast cancer research, education and screenings. This year Pink Ribbon Produce is teaming up with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.

Using in-store, interactive and online components in conjunction with a public relations campaign, Pink Ribbon Produce drives consumer awareness through the produce departments at Harris Teeter, Meijer and Price Chopper retailers. Shoppers can pick up information on healthy living and early breast cancer detection while shopping and support the Pink Ribbon Produce promotion by purchasing participating supplier products.

Donations are raised through the participating produce suppliers who donate a flat dollar amount and through our online donation campaign during the promotion dates. All donations support the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. and the money raised is kept in the local communities.

Please contact Marta Ryan with any questions regarding this program.

Servings: 8 

4 large sweet potatoes, about 1 pound each
16 oz. Highline Mushrooms® white or mini bella mushrooms
1 lb. lean ground turkey
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 cups prepared barbecue sauce
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
4 green onions, white and green
portion sliced

Directions: Pierce potatoes in several places with a fork and cook in the microwave according to your unit’s instructions, 13 to 15 minutes, until fork-tender. Let sit until cool enough to handle.

Add mushrooms to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely chopped (or finely dice by hand if preferred). Blend ground turkey and mushrooms in a large bowl.

Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the turkey and mushrooms. Cook, stirring often, until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add onion. Continue to cook, until the turkey is browned and no longer pink, about 7 more minutes. Drain excess liquid.

Add barbecue sauce and stir until heated through, about 2 minutes. Cut each sweet potato in half lengthwise. Place cut-side up on a baking sheet. Use a fork to mash some of the potato and move to the sides to create a space for the filling. Spoon barbecue filling into each of the 8 potato halves. Sprinkle with an equal amount of cheese.

Broil on high for five minutes, until cheese
is browned and bubbling. Serve warm.

1 16 oz. package elbow macaroni
1 12 oz. bag of Eat Smart Broccoli
& Cauliflower Florets®
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups whole milk
1 cup chicken or vegetable stock
4 oz. Neufchatel cream cheese
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
(2 tbsp. reserved for topping)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
(1 tbsp. reserved for topping)
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs

Directions: Preheat oven to 375°. Cook pasta according to package directions for al dente. Two minutes short of the pasta’s finish cooking time, add florets to pasta water and continue cooking. Drain pasta and vegetables and place in greased 9″ x 12″ baking dish. Melt butter in medium saucepan over low flame. Add flour and stir with a wooden spoon to form a paste. Cook paste for five minutes, stirring occasionally, to avoid raw flour taste in your finished sauce. Slowly add milk to pan while stirring to incorporate. Add chicken stock and raise heat to medium. While milk mixture is heating, place Neufchatel in small bowl and add some of the warming liquid, stirring in one tablespoon at a time to soften into a thick liquid. Add cream cheese mixture to pot, stirring to incorporate. Heat sauce to a low boil and remove from heat. Stir in all remaining ingredients except breadcrumbs and reserved Parmesan.

Pour sauce over pasta and vegetable in baking dish and stir gently to incorporate. Top with breadcrumbs and reserved cheeses. Bake until bubbly and golden brown on top, about 25 minutes.
