The Penn State Extension Nutrition Links program offers free nutrition education programs to participants eligible for public assistance to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve a healthful diet on a limited budget.
Healthy Eating on a Budget
Meal Planning with Pulses
September 22, 2015Stuck in a rut with your meals? Try some pulses- legumes (beans) and lentils to shake up your meal planning. They pack powerful protein, fiber and more nutrients for little cost.
Healthy Meals with Food Pantry Foods
May 22, 2015The USDA MyPlate is an example of a healthy meal.
May 18, 2015Some foods classified as fats can protect us against heart disease and yet other fats may contribute to heart disease. We need to eat some fats because they provide essential nutrients such as Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. However, a healthy diet limits the amount of fat to five (5) teaspoons a day for adult women, and six (6) teaspoons a day for adult men.
Healthy Sweet Desserts
May 14, 2015Most sweet desserts do not contain many nutrients our bodies need and have lots of calories. If you are a baker, you are in luck! Making desserts yourself can boost the nutrition of desserts. If you are not a baker, take the first step and learn how to make healthy sweet desserts.
Salad Dressing Make Over
May 11, 2015Eating fewer calories doesn’t necessarily mean eating less food according to the Center for Disease Control. Eating more vegetables in salads can fill you up with just a few calories. Salads can be a great source of a variety of vegetables. However, they can also be a dumping ground for unwanted calories if they are topped with a lot of high calorie salad dressing.
