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.
