It is said that the 100 folds of a chef’s hat (known as a toque) symbolize the 100 ways to cook an egg. Eggs are certainly a versatile food—great for every meal from breakfast to dessert and snacks in between—and they’re also a nutritious and affordable food, too. Eggs are so outstanding that the month of May is National Egg Month, a whole month to celebrate eggs!
Today is yet another awesome food holiday to celebrate—it’s National Shrimp Day! Did you know that Americans eat more shrimp than any other seafood? Of the 15.5 pounds of fish and shellfish eaten by the average American each year, shrimp accounts for 4 pounds, topping the entire list.
Did you know that May marks National BBQ Month? While there’s no denying our love for hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken and other grill favorites, we can’t ignore our obsession over side dishes fit for outdoor dining. And we know that we’re not alone! Between the array of pasta and potato salads, deviled eggs and veggie assortments, we simply just cannot get enough.
Spring cleaning is an annual ritual for most Americans and a great time for serious scrubbing, polishing, decluttering and reorganization. This year, be sure to add the refrigerator and freezer to your list – not only will you have a cleaner-looking kitchen, you will have an appliance that is working effectively and efficiently, and most importantly, you will have foods that are safe to eat.
There’s a day for everything it seems. Some we can relate to, some not so much. National English Muffin Day – April 23 — is especially exciting for those of us English muffin lovers!
These days it’s all about veggies, veggies, veggies! Number one on Forbes’ list of the Top 5 Food Trends for 2017 is vegetarian comfort food. What is that you ask? Well, people are looking for new comfort foods that include mashed cauliflower and innovations such as vegetable crust pizza. As plant-based diets gain popularity, certain vegetables are on the rise as well including eggplant, broccoli and squash. (Bet you didn’t know plant-based bacon is a thing!) 😉
You do your best to balance all parts of your busy lifestyle including remembering to be active and keep a balanced diet. This is where frozen foods can be a reliable source for planning ahead and staying on track. Why? Frozen foods are real foods that just happen to be frozen retaining all the flavor, quality and nutrition as when they were made.
