In order to help show that healthy meals can be delicious, Gail Julius, of Northwest Indian College’s Traditional Plants & Foods Program (part of the Cooperative Extension Office) has committed to providing the community with a recipe each month.
“Like anything in life, change is a slow process,” Julius said. “I am not saying that you have to give up your favorite foods, just choose one day per week to introduce healthy food choices, and begin to watch your body transform.”
This month’s featured recipe is Powerhouse Chicken Pita, which is made of chicken, kale, spinach, almonds, whole wheat pita bread and your choice of dressing.
