When Choosing Protein foods, Variety is Key
Protein foods include both animal (meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs) and plant (beans, peas, soy products, nuts, and seeds) sources. We all need protein - but most Americans eat enough, and some eat more than they need. How much is enough? Most people, ages 9 and older, should eat 5 to 7 ounces of protein foods each day.

Cooking Convenience Foods
Every year, one in six Americans will fall ill due to some form of food poisoning. Many time it's the result of not cooking food to the correct temperature. In fact, bacteria can multiply the quickest when food is between 40° F and 140° F. Follow these four simple steps when preparing food to keep you and your family safe.
