An Apple A Day

Here are some smart dinner recipes that the whole family can enjoy!

Between dropping off and picking up the kids, a full day’s work and the endless demands of the day, Mom’s need quick and easy dinner recipes that deliver nutritional value and help to turn
dinner-time into family-time.

As part of our COA Mind & Body program we believe that eating well is a learned experience, one passed on by the parent. By opening up the world of “nourishing” food children make better food choices and develop a healthy respect for nutrition.

We know you are superstars both on the job and at home but every star needs a break once in a while. Let COA Apple-A-Day Blog help you with
quick recipes and monthly tips.

Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Choose whole grains

Pick whole grains over refined grains, at least 50 percent of the time. Whole grains like brown rice and bulgur have their bran intact and thus have more fiber, B vitamins, magnesium, zinc and other nutrients. Try quinoa, whole wheat pasta, oats, farro and barley as side dishes, on top of salads and in soups.
