A little more on the topic of National Nutrition Month® and nutrition facts.
It is said that variety is the spice of life. It is easy to get stuck in our comfort zone with foods by eating the same things day-after-day. Have you been working on getting fit and fabulous, but are still making the same food choices? Have you tried any new foods lately?
I would encourage you to continuously try foods new to you. As a Registered Dietitian, I still am finding foods that are new to me. Recently I tried quinoa (keen-wa) after reading about it on a colleague’s website (and loved it!). Life Coach and Registered Dietitian Janet Simpson is collecting recipes for a future book featuring quinoa and posting them on her website. To find out more about this grain visit: www.nourishyourlife.com/cooking-with-the-grain-of-angels.
Oh yes, it is always easier to try a new food when a recipe is recommended by someone. So I asked Janet and she recommends two favorite recipes which are found on the website: Asparagus Quinoa Soup and Fresh Quinoa Fruit Salad.
Give them a try. I am planning to include one on my menu for next week. Thank you Janet!
