Did you know that the invention of breakfast cereal was founded on the fact that the American diet of the 1800’s was considered unhealthy? Cereal became a remedy-of- sort or “wonder food”.
Happy National Appetizer Day!
Pizza is trendy! But skip the takeout and make your own signature (and better for-you!) pie! Simply think outside the pizza box when it comes to toppings. Load up with colorful veggies, trade traditional pepperoni for lean protein and top with a light sprinkle of flavorful cheese for a punch of fresh flavor.
Next time soup is on your menu, instead of reaching for a canned variety, try making soup at home. That way you control the sodium (for example, using lower sodium broth can save 300+ mg of sodium per cup!) and add more healthful ingredients such as vegetables, beans and whole grains (brown rice, barley, quinoa, whole wheat pasta).
