NUTRITION INSPIRATIONS: Welcome to Your 3rd Edition

Great tofu recipe
This is a delicious tofu recipe that I made for my cooking club.

Try a new grain
I tried Freekeh wheat for the first time and loved it! You can use it in place of rice, couscous, or pasta. It has a chewy texture and meaty flavor. You can find it conveniently packaged at Trader Joe's.

Flax Seeds

Try adding ground flax seeds to oatmeal, yogurt, or cottage cheese for extra omegas in your breakfast or mid morning snack. Adds a nutty flavor and texture.

Mercury in Fish

Many of us have been hearing and reading that mercury can be detrimental to our health. Here is a great list for deciding how often to eat specific fish.

Good question Bradi - Yes, there is a wonderful brand called Wild Planet - They make a MINIMAL MERCURY tuna - This is the tuna I buy for my family - It is sold locally at Shop Rite but you can also order it online.

Hi Shari,
My son loves tuna fish... which I see is high in mercury. Is there a particular brand that is better (lower levels) than another?
