Dish up a Healthy Dinner Plate

To build a healthy dinner meal, use the Eat Well Plate and choose foods from Canada’s Food Guide. Try our lower sodium recipes such as Roasted Salmon with Lentils and Creamy Pesto or Turkey Shepherd’s Pie. Quick and Easy Meals provides you with mix and match meal suggestions.

Enjoy Your Meal Experience

Make your meal the focus of your attention. Enjoy your meal experience at home, or away at work, school or play. Eat in a quiet, comfortable place and remove the distractions like electronic devices and the television. If sharing a meal with others, add some fun and engaging table-talk with these Conversation Cards! Slow Cooker Fruit Pudding, Pita Pizzas, and Two Dips and Five Dippers are great recipes to enjoy with others. See Inspiring Healthy Eating for many more new healthy recipe ideas.
