Nutrition Month Week 4: Try Something New!
Think healthy eating is bland? No way! Healthy eating tastes great! Keep it interesting: get creative with cooking strategies, experiment with new foods and flavours and refresh your recipes.
Dietitian Pro Tips
Hello tastebuds! Get ready to tingle! It’s time to try something new.
√ Want to try new foods but not sure where to start? These tasty ideas are sure to tempt you:
Toss slivers of raw purple beets, green pears, feta and flax
in a lemony vinaigrette for a salad that’s bursting with colour and crunch.
Squeeze lime juice onto grilled pineapple for a naturally sweet dessert.
Make mushroom risotto with toasted barley and low-sodium broth, and then sprinkle with Parmesan for a flavour-filled side dish.
Sauté apples in a little butter, dust with cinnamon and top with toasted oats, crumbled walnuts and creamy yogurt for a superb Sunday breakfast.
√ Instead of take-out tonight, make your own quick and tasty meals.
√ Spice is nice! New flavour combos can kick up the taste in your usual fare.
