Warm foods for a cold day

My Heart Healthy meal for January was a Rice Pudding from one of the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s cookbooks. It was unfortunately so popular that it was eaten up before I remembered to take a picture! Everyone in the club agreed it was just not the same with non-dairy substitutes.

Are you a lover of Maple Syrup? You may soon be able to better identify the type of syrup you prefer with this new grading system.

I had such a hard time deciding what to make from my cookbook for February, Diabetes Comfort Food Cookbook by the American Diabetes Association. A few recipes I have tabbed to make later in the month. When I think of comfort foods I immediately crave potatoes and ground hamburger with gravy, stew, perogies and sausage, or meat pie. Potatoes are definitely one of my comfort foods!

The two recipes that I made were Tomato, Basil & Mozzarella Salad & Classic Grilled Cheese.

Substitutions/additions:

  • Grill cheese – opted for PC 1-year aged white cheddar vs. low fat cheese.
  • Salad – left out cheese as we were having grilled cheese already. Added balsamic vinegar. Rounded out the meal with artichoke hearts and PC Spanish Style selection meats.
