Tip of the Day
Have a Happy, Healthy Mother's Day
This year, treat Mom to a delicious meal to show your appreciation and love. Building meals around fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein foods and low-fat dairy is a good way to sample healthier food options instead of giving her candy or pastries.
Put your chef's hat on and get to work in the kitchen. For breakfast, start off with an omelet packed with vegetables, whole-grain toast, fresh fruit and low-fat milk.
For lunch, prepare a whole-grain pasta salad with her favorite vegetables and olive oil and vinegar. Offer a cup of tomato soup on the side and fresh fruit.
For dinner, treat Mom to grilled salmon with a green salad and roasted potatoes. Great dessert ideas include low-fat yogurt or angel food cake topped with fruit.
