While the month of March is over, we all can celebrate the fact spring is here and the hot weather is just around the corner. Even though today marks the beginning of April, I want to share some of the great articles we published in the March issue of Today’s Dietitian.
If you want to jazz up your breakfasts and make them more healthful, read “Best Breakfasts from Around the World.” This article talks about all of the delicious breakfasts people eat in China, Vietnam, Costa Rica, Turkey, Israel, and Venezuela. You’d be surprised what they eat and how much it differs from what we eat here in America for that all-important morning meal.
Have a desire to learn how you can eat more healthfully as an African American? Check out “Obtaining Health Through Heritage.” This article discusses the African Heritage Diet Pyramid, which features the delicious foods rooted in African traditions that can prevent heart disease, diabetes, and stroke that plagues the black community. The article provides recipes for a Brazilian fish stew, West African peanut soup, Grilled red snapper, and more.
Other articles that might be interesting include a recipe for Brussels sprouts. I know, most people hate them, but this recipe gives them a complete makeover that’s quite tasty. And for those of you who believe that eating healthfully is too expensive, read “Eat Healthfully on a Budget.”
The April issue comes out at the end of this week. If you’re a fan of the summer Olympics, which will be held in London this year beginning in July, we have a story just for you. Until then, take care. See you around in cyberspace.
