Healthy and fun: campfire cooking the MyPlate Way
It’s Memorial Day weekend — time for sunshine, swimming, grilling and camping. It’s important at mealtime that you consume a variety of foods from all the food groups. Using the MyPlate method makes sure that one-fourth of your plate is a lean protein, one-fourth is a grain and at least half your plate is made up of vegetables and fruit.
Using foil packets to grill or heat on a campfire is an easy way to ensure you and your family are eating a balanced meal and the clean-up is a snap. There is no need for plates; all you need is foil and a fork.
Your family can personalize their foil packs by choosing their own ingredients. Combine ground beef, rice, beans, peppers and cheese for a Southwestern meal, or tilapia and summertime vegetables for a light meal. Make a side by combining potatoes, vegetables and seasonings.
