USDA: Celebrating Cultural Heritage with Mouthwatering Meals

USDA: Celebrating Cultural Heritage with Mouthwatering Meals. “Looking for recipes that are both flavorful and nutritious? Nutrition.gov has added new resources that can help you. The newly enhanced Nutrition.gov includes an Ethnic Cooking section on the Shopping, Cooking & Meal Planning page designed to fit the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans…. Consumers can browse recipes for diverse cultural dishes under Healthy Latino Recipes, Home Cooking African American Style, Native American Recipes, Vietnamese Community Recipes, Filipino Community Recipes and other groups, as well as recipes available on the website of our Federal partner, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Consumers can also search the new What’s Cooking? recipe database by ethnic cuisine such as Asian, Middle Eastern or Mediterranean.” I’m a little uncomfortable with the “ethnic” label. Especially since one of the choices for “ethnic” is “southern.” But there are lots of recipes here and perhaps it’s just me.
