Planning for a Great Year

1/1/2012

Are you in a recipe rut? Why not resolve to make 2012 the most delicious year yet!

When you plan your family's menus, choose foods with lots of color and textural interest. Set aside a little time for basic cooking and prep that will make what you've planned a snap to put together and cut down prep time for future meals.

Think red, green, orange, and yellow for a well-rounded variety. Go for whole grains whenever possible and plan meat-free meals on occasion. Try Whole Wheat Tofu Spaghetti with Peanut Butter, Tofu and Vegetables for a better for you meal you can feel good about.

Serve plenty of greens! They're packed with essential vitamins and nutrients to help keep you and the kids well nourished. Salads are more fun when they're tossed up with flavorful dressings. Try Apple Cider Peanut Dressing to give your favorite salad a new zing.

Plan snacks that can go along with you on your busy day. Peanut Butter Trail Bars are portable and ready when you are for a snack. These multi-tasking bars taste great and combine Jif® Omega-3 Creamy Peanut Butter, with protein powder, flax and walnuts.

Here's to a delicious new year!
