BIG Nutrition: New food ideas for the long weekend!


BIG Nutrition: New food ideas for the long weekend!

Always on the lookout for new recipes? Here are a few to consider for the long weekend ahead. Also, notes follow for tips.

Grilled Summer Vegetables with Tahini Dressing

Note. If your market roasts or grills vegetables, then you can add the tahini dressing to this one.

Greek Farro Salad

Note. Wanting to test out a new whole grain? Farro is easy to make, can be frozen, and is great in oatmeal and soup!

Lentil Salad with Tomato and Dill

Note. Thinking about “other” healthier carb foods? How about lentils?!

Tomato, Cucumber, and Red Onion Salad with Mint

Spanish Style Grilled Vegetables with Bread Crumbs (bread crumbs can be omitted or use whole grain bread)

Summer Fruit Salad with Mint Sugar

Pounded Flank Steak with Zucchini Salsa

Note. Could also use spiralized zucchini (zoodles) that is available at some markets.

Have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!

Happy and healthful eating,

Donna G. Pertel, MEd, RD, LDN
