    8. Eating Healthy in the Media • Eating local • Eat more plants to save the world! • Slow food • Organics • Vegetarians, Vegans & pescetarians

    9. Barriers to Good Nutrition • Money and . . . ??? • Break into groups of 3 and brainstorm for 5 minutes • What are other barriers to good nutrition for the SNAP families you work with? • How can we overcome those barriers?

    10. Barriers & Solutions • Lack of storage • Limited cooking skills • Limited cooking equipment & utensils • Poor refrigeration • Limited transportation • Time squeeze with jobs • Vary by community • Others . . .

    11. Usual Suspects . . . • Cook from scratch • Use coupons wisely • Purchase fruits & veggies in season • Plan meals with nutrition in mind!!! • MyPyramid.gov • http://www.mypyramidtracker.gov/planner/ • Low Cost 2 week recipes - pdf file • http://www.cnpp.usda.gov/USDAFoodPlansCostofFood.htm

    12. Supermarket Savvy • Shop the perimeter • Limit items from the middle of the store • Buy more single ingredient foods • Store brands • Quality & nutrition similar to national brands • Limit processed foods • Anything in a box

    15. Shops the specials • Plan meals around sale specials • Especially expensive items • Meat and milk • Stock up on canned produce • Choose low cost protein • Rice, beans • Eat more plants, less meat

    16. Freezing Meat on Sale • It’s safe to freeze meat or poultry directly in its supermarket wrapping but this type of wrap is permeable to air. • Unless the food will be used in a month or two, over wrap these packages for long-term storage using airtight heavy-duty foil, (freezer) plastic wrap or freezer paper, or place the package inside a (freezer) plastic bag. USDA Food Safety & Inspection

    17. Freezing Meat on Sale • At 0 degrees F, frozen foods remain safe indefinitely, but quality decreases. • Frozen raw ground meat maintains optimum quality for 3 to 4 months. • Larger pieces of meat like steaks or chops maintain optimum quality for 4 to 12 months. • The safest way to thaw meat is in the refrigerator on a plate on the bottom shelf so it doesn’t drip on other foods. USDA Food Safety & Inspection

    18. Cost of Protein • How much is needed for 20 grams? • 3 eggs • 3 oz chicken or ground beef • 2 cups milk • 3.5 oz cheddar cheese • 2 cups cooked rice • 1 cup soybeans • 3 oz tuna • 4.5 Tablespoons peanut butter • 1.5 cups beans • 10 slices of bread What is Protein?, G.
