Summer days are coming to an end. We’re saying goodbye to later bed times, unscheduled meal times (that often contain way more junk food than they should) and relaxed days. Now it is hello to early mornings, packing lunches, busy days and hectic evenings. To keep everyone going, you need to find a back to school routine that works and to fuel everyone properly.
Time and patience is at a premium, so make sure to pick foods that deliver ease AND nutrition. Fancy and fussy is NOT what you need at this time of year. Instead, how about figuring out a way to deliver food your family will love with a bit more of a nutritional punch? Sound good? Thought so!
Check out this recipe for Turkey and Lentil Ragu. It’s easy and delicous plus full of nutrients. Why turkey and lentils? Well, turkey packs a big punch with each 100-gram serving providing about 30 grams of high quality lean protein. It’s also packed with nutrients like vitamin B12 (important in keeping your nervous system – the body’s electrical wiring – working well), selenium (an antioxidant mineral) and zinc (for a strong immune system). Lentils are high in protein and fiber, and a great source of minerals such as potassium, iron, and folate.
Together, Canadian turkey and lentils can become the building blocks for everyday meal solutions that power up your family and get them ready for busy, activity-filled days. Choose recipes, like this one, that include both lentils and turkey, and double your nutritional punch. Put Canadian turkey and lentils on your plate every day and you can feel good knowing that you are feeding your family healthy and nutritious food that will get everyone through their days filled with energy and good-for-you fuel!
