Healthy Eating

What's For Dinner?

From delightful desserts to savory suppers, a little creativity and one canned ingredient can turn an ordinary dish into an extraordinary meal. Even your favorite “go-to” recipes deserve an upgrade, so simply choose a category to learn how you can stretch a meal, boost flavor, cut prep time or increase nutrition by adding just one canned ingredient. It’s that easy!

Cook Once, Eat for a Month!

Preparing a month of meals in a single day seems like a daunting task, but it can be done.  This method of cooking has many benefits. First, it saves money.  Providing a healthy meal is another benefit of this cooking method.  Perhaps the greatest benefit of this method is how it can encourage the family to eat meals together.
