Your mission this week
#TasteAB Mission Inspiration: Include Alberta dairy in your lunches
Lee Finell, a registered dietician with Alberta Milk, encourages you to have at least three food groups in your lunch, including milk or milk alternatives. Milk needs to stay cool, so you can pack it in a thermos, especially if you're packing a lunch for kids. Lee also recommends a thermal lunch bag, so you can pack yogurt. "It's portable, all you need is a spoon and 3/4 of a cup is a serving." Lee says Alberta's Bles-Wold yogurt is a great local way to incorporate dairy into your meals. "Greek yogurt is great, especially for women to pack [in their lunches], because it's high in protein." Hard cheese is also an option, and it's good for both kids and adults. "Cheese is one of the easiest things to include in a sandwich, Lee says. "I would always add cheese into any sandwich, if possible." She also suggests cream soups, which you can cook the night before and pack as leftovers.
If you're inspired to use local ingredients to complete your mission this week, let us know by also tagging your mission #tasteab for an extra chance to get in the paper! Here's some local inspiration from your fellow Gastroposters.
To complete this week's mission, our partners at Save-On-Foods want to help with a coupon to save on Farmer's Finest Comfort Coop Eggs. Make them into an egg salad sandwich, or boil eggs and pack them in lunches throughout the week! Print off this coupon and take it to your closest Save-On-Foods location, then Gastropost it!
