Samuel Davis (age 11, Louisiana) describes his use of garden vegetables in his Healthy Lunchtime Challenge winning recipe for Sam’s Southern Savoring Salmon Supreme (S5), in this video from WGBH. Sam shows off his family’s backyard garden, where tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and more, grow. He looks forward to getting gardening tips from First Lady Michelle Obama, who describes the White House garden as a way to spread the ideas of eating well, growing your own food, and making friends with vegetables. Sam encourages his family members to eat brown rice instead of white rice and a salad instead of pizza. He now has the opportunity to share his knowledge of healthy eating with his community.
