Learn how each recipe can be adapted to incorporate more nutrients or to reduce sodium, added sugar, and/or saturated fat. Mary Alice teaches simple hacks, such as replacing brown rice for white rice to add fiber to your dish, or substituting no-salt-added canned beans to minimize sodium. And, each recipe features lean protein from poultry and eggs!
