Healthy Meals in a Hurry
Making nutritious food choices can be a challenge whether you're facing a hungry family or just your own growling stomach. A new publication from Iowa State University Extension is designed to help consumers of all ages blend time-saving convenience with nutritious, dollar-stretching food choices.
"Healthy Meals in a Hurry" is the topic of a new publication available from ISU Extension. The publication offers recipes for 14 main dishes that can be prepared ahead of time and frozen for ready-to-use convenience. Preparing all 14 recipes and packaging them in the suggested amounts produces a total of 120 servings at a cost of less than $1 per serving.
In addition, each recipe includes a nutritional analysis. Most recipes also satisfy the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Dietary Guidelines, as well as the DASH (Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension) Diet recommendations.
The "Healthy Meals in a Hurry" publication (PM 2035) is available for $2.50 per copy from the Monroe County ISU Extension office. It's also available from ISU Extension's online store.
