Summer Cooking the MyPlate Way
Cooking times will vary on the foods selected – potatoes and carrots will take longer than other foods as well as heat from the fire. Remember to carefully open the packet as there will be lots of steam.
Kabobs are another great way to follow the MyPlate. Pieces of fish, poultry, pork or beef along with an assortment of vegetables that are placed on skewers is a great start to a healthy meal. Add some brown or wild rice and you have a tasty meal.
For a cooler option, combine 1 bag of blended lettuce, cooked chicken, almonds, strawberries and mandarin oranges. Toss with poppy seed dressing. Another great way to eat following the MyPlate.
