Taco Time

Taco Time

Cooking at home can be healthy, easier on your budget and a great way to bring the family together. Why not make it “taco time” once a week and involve the whole family?

Perfect Sides to Any Summer Dish

Kale is all the rage! Think outside the salad bowl and roast a batch of kale as “chips” – perfect to serve in place of traditional potato chips.  Because these kale “chips” are baked instead of fried, you’ll save calories and fat grams – plus dish up a dose of antioxidants key to your good health!

Carrot “chips” add a burst of bright color and nearly “sweet” flavor to snack time or as a side to your luncheon sandwich! Choose extra-large carrots for the simplest way to shave into strips.

Open Face Caprese Sandwich

Open Face Caprese Sandwich

Caprese salad is a summertime favorite. This time we’re serving it up as a sandwich, and roasting the tomatoes into a delicious salsa! Roasting veggies caramelizes their natural sugars for an extra layer of flavor. Don’t forget to make extras – the salsa makes a great topping for pizza made on the grill.

Go Green and Live a Healthier Life
Dietary guidelines recommend filling half our plate with fruits and vegetables and just a quarter of the plate with “protein”, such as meat, fish or poultry.  And when it comes to protein, did you know the same guidelines also suggest eating more plant-based protein? 
Sweet Pea and Prosciutto Risotto with Carved Chicken
Risotto traditionally uses Arbario rice - a starchy rice variety that lends creaminess to the dish! And unlike traditional risottos, our version uses heart healthy olive oil instead of hefty doses of butter in cooking; and pureed peas add a subtle layer of flavor and veggies to the dish! Try with fresh peas from your farmer's market, too!
