STAMFORD - Employees at Stamford Hospital are recommending patients stop eating processed foods and make the change to organic.

Gavin Pritchard, a nutritionist at the hospital, says there are plenty of all-natural food options that can do wonders for one's health. He uses pumpkin seeds as an example, saying they deliver protein, fiber and oils that are healthy for the heart.

The hospital is working in conjunction with a farm plot located behind the newly renovated hospital.
