Know What you Eat
If you have any dietary restrictions or are preparing food for someone who does, make sure to read the food labels of the products you are using. Food labels list product ingredients and specifically tell you whether a product contains allergens. This is important if someone with a food allergy might eat your food.

Healthy Food Choices
We receive Information about food directly and indirectly. Food advertisements, portion sizes, and what we read on social media are a few examples of indirect information we receive. All this messaging can be confusing when, for instance, advertisements claim products are associate with health benefits when in truth, they are not. Portion sizes in restaurants often are much larger than they need to be, resulting in over-eating. The abundance in signals makes it challenging to make well-informed and healthy food choices.
The information given in this recipe will hopefully help you make more informed food choices. If you want to read more about healthy food choices in general, check out our article [Healthy Food Choices] and read through your country’s food guide. Most governments provide general information about recommended food intake. These recommendations are often called food guides or nutrition guides. They provide the population with recommendations based on scientific research that applies to most people. An example of a helpful guide can be found [here].
