  • Healthy Eating Tip – #4

    Farm Food Personal Chef Service     |   

    Here is Healthy Eating Tip #4 of the Healthy Eating Challenge with Farm Food and the Parent Resource Portal. Potatoes are an easy and inexpensive food to prepare; and although they contain fibre and iron, they are also high in calories. To reduce the calories from the potatoes, you can substitute cauliflower or sweet potatoes for either all, or some of the potatoes. Cauliflower is lower in calories and contains more folate, vitamin C and vitamin K than regular potatoes. I like to buy frozen cauliflower florets – sometimes less expensive than fresh cauliflower and a lot less work! Sweet potatoes…

    Here is Recipe #2 for Day 4 of the Healthy Eating Challenge with Farm Food and the Parent Resource Portal. Chana Masala is an Indian vegetarian dish that you can serve with brown rice, wild rice or whole wheat naan bread for scooping.

    Hello! Welcome to Day 4 of the Healthier Eating Challenge with Farm Food and the Parent Resource Portal. Here is Recipe #1.

It looked like a great idea to make the same old boring snacks more fun!

  • Healthy Eating Tip #3

    Farm Food Personal Chef Service     |   

    FOOD SUBSTITUTIONS! Here are some substitutions that will make your baked goods healthier, so you do not have to feel so guilty when you indulge! OIL - To replace oil in your recipe, you can substitute a fruit puree (such as applesauce, pumpkin, butternut squash or banana) in a 1:1 ratio. If you use applesauce, I would recommend using unsweetened, so your treats are not too sweet. Your baked goods may be a bit chewier - if so, just try substituting for half the oil next time. EGGS - To replace each egg in your recipe, you can substitute 1/4 cup applesauce, one…
