Enjoying food in the great outdoors is a fun part of summer and makes memories for family and friends. Make picnics healthful and safe with these tips.
We are going on a little road trip this summer. Every time we stop to fuel our car, my kids ask for treats at the convenience store. What can I do?
Do you feel like you are constantly running and don't have time to cook?
Be sure to keep your milk and dairy products safe to eat.
Are you looking for a delicious, quick and easy meal idea? Enjoy a delicious stir-fry made with a variety of colorful seasonal summer vegetables. Check out what's available at your grocery store, a farmers market or your own garden. In-season fresh vegetables are at their best quality and, often, best price. When you make a stir-fry, you do not heat up your oven, so your kitchen will stay cooler, too.
I tracked the food I eat on the SuperTracker (at www.chooseMyPlate.gov) for a week. I learned that I am not getting enough calcium and vitamin D in my diet. I like milk, but I tend to have water instead of milk.
During the spring, many people take steps to clean their closets, garages and kitchens. Have you ever had to throw out food that has become moldy in your fridge? Have any of your packaged foods lost their appealing taste or color because they were "lost" in the back of a cupboard? Have you bought a large package of food because it had a lower "unit price" and you or your family became tired of the food?
I noticed that lots of food packages say "use by" and "best if used by" and then list a date. Will I get sick if I eat the food after the date?
Do you look forward to the green grass, red and yellow tulips, and all the other beautiful, blooming colors of spring? In honor of nature's rebirth and the beauty around us, let's consider how to maintain healthy vision. April has two national observances for eye health: Sports Eye Safety Awareness Month and Women's Eye Health and Safety Month.
My doctor mentioned that leafy greens are good for my eyes. I have a space for a small garden this spring. Do you have any tips?
