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!
Happy Chocolate Lovers Month! With Valentine’s Day occurring in the month of February, it’s no surprise the entire month is devoted to chocolate lovers. In fact, about $400 million worth of chocolate is purchased around the world on Valentine’s Day. But honestly, what’s not to love about chocolate? The average American eats about a half a pound of chocolate per month. That’s a lot of chocolate! With so much popularity, we can’t be the only ones who are curious about the origins of this glorious treat!
You may not have had it marked on your calendar (yet), but today marks National Potato Lovers Day! Potatoes are one of the most versatile foods out there. With so many varieties, styles and cooking methods, there’s a potato dish or recipe for everyone. Did you know that potatoes were the first-ever food to be grown in outer space?
It’s a challenge to get the whole family together to sit down for dinner, especially on weeknights with different schedules and little time to cook. Dinnertime is an important opportunity for meaningful conversations with your kids, a chance to eat more mindfully and an excuse to take a breath and relax after a long day. For healthy, delicious meals that will have you spending less time in the kitchen and more time at the table with your loved ones, look to the Mediterranean diet.

June is a favorite month in our household. Of course the warmer weather is a great base, and then there’s those first nights of grilling, Father’s Day, eating outdoors….but my kids would look at me with confusion as I list these reasons first. It’s also the end of the school year, hence the beginning of summer, which is a magical moment in their world.
