Recipes for Eating Healthy
 
produce shopper

We want to thank everyone who submitted their recipes to us. We painstakingly went through the hundreds of submissions we received and chose those that contained at least 50% Commodity food items within the recipe.

Great care has been taken in selecting these recipes; our basis for selection was ease of preparation, required few pots or pans and most importantly taste.

Each and every recipe was taste tested by Native Americans from around the country in many different tribes. A number of these recipes have been modified slightly to minimize the amounts of sugar and sodium required, yet still providing you with a tasty dish.

We hope that you take advantage of this site and try these dishes in your home; and we also encourage you to submit your own recipes on our Feed Back page. Thank you.
