3-Every-Day

It seems as though all I have these days, outside of internship studies and Grey’s Anatomy, is cooking and Chocolate Broccoli (and definitly NOT to forget my incredibly understanding husband!). Relaxation comes to individuals in a variety of ways. Some people come home and like a long shower, some people watch tv, some people exercise..my release is to COOK. Cooking after a long, hard day gives me such satisfaction, and the result is a fantastic meal for me and my hubby :) Hence..another yummy date night at home (with DVR’d Greys Anatomy..)

Consuming 3-Every-Day™ of dairy, as recommended by the National Dairy Council, is an easy way for individuals to get a powerful punch of nutrients. Together, low-fat and fat-free milk, cheese, and yogurt provide a unique package of nine essential nutrients, including calcium, potassium, phosphorus, protein, vitamins A, D and B12, riboflavin, and niacin, not to mention great taste. The 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recognize that people who consume more low-fat and fat-free dairy foods have better overall diets, have more nutrient intake and improved bone health. In fact, studies show dairy foods, when consumed as part of a healthy diet, may help to reduce the risk of osteoporosis, hypertension, obesity, colon cancer, and metabolic syndrome, a cluster of conditions that can lead to heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Reduced-fat cheese, 98% fat-free cream of chicken soup, and reduced-fat sour cream helped us say adiós to half the fat in this YUMM-O, healthified version of this Mexican Classic.
