resources and videos, as well as a page dedicated to this year's theme which focuses on food skills and preparation. A new tool that came out in time for Nutrition Month, but will be available all year, is DC's new app Cookspiration. I've heard great feedback from people that have tried it, and I love that it asks you what time of day you're looking for a recipe for, as well as the type of dish, mood, speed, etc. that you're focused on (ie. On-The-Fly or Fill Me Up).
Cooking at home can be challenge for many reasons, and I know that we all feel to busy for it! I for one love to be in the kitchen and it's a chance for my husband and I to catch up on our day. If you have an 'excuse' as to why you're not cooking at home more often, such as:
- too busy
- don't know what to make
- don't have time
- don't have necessary ingredients
- picky eaters to feed...
- make a list and stock your fridge/freezer/pantry
- cook a big batch that can be reheated throughout the week
- take advantage of healthy convenience items (frozen stirfry vegetables, canned beans, etc.)
- check out cookbooks or apps for recipe ideas
- get together with family or friends to make multiple recipes to share
- create meals with options (make your own pizza, tortilla, yogurt parfait, etc.)
