Healthy Eating Activity: “Secret Ingredient” Week

Here’s an activity I wanted to share with you all from my Real World Wellness nutrition consulting business – it’s a great way to get the whole family involved in healthy eating and to explore some of the healthy foods available to you at your nearest grocery store.

“Secret Ingredient” Week

Goal: Try a healthy new ingredient this week.

Take a leaf from the Iron Chef’s book and cook your next meal around a surprise ingredient! The next time you’re at the grocery store, buy one new ingredient you’ve never used before: maybe you choose lentils, Swiss chard, or chia seeds.

After that, flip through your cookbooks or check out some food blogs for healthier recipes with your partner, kids or friends, and start cooking!

    Hmmmm. I’m fairly new to milled chia seeds, which I’ve been LOVING! I’ve only ever had them in my smoothie so far, so maybe it’s time to experiment by actually cooking with it. I’ll take any tips you’ve got!
