The Kansas Beef Council just added a fun and engaging new section to their site. Right now you can take a short quiz (remember those teen magazine ones?) and learn what type of cook you are. The new My Plate, My Way interactive tool offers personalized tips and recipes to guide healthy eating choices that are tailored to you, while fitting in with USDA’s dietary guidelines.
There are eight categories you could fit into. A few examples are “Cost slicer,” “time tackler” or “family chef.” I seriously thought I was going to be a “Time Tackler.” When it comes to cooking for my family, I am crazy busy and don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen doing prep work.
But surprise! The results came back as “Family Chef!” Here is a little blurb it gave me with my results:
You can feel good about serving lean beef to your whole family—it provides 10 essential nutrients and has been shown to help with weight maintenance and heart health, all while tasting delicious!
I agree, I really do value the family aspect of dinner and serving a healthy meal together warms my heart! So this was spot on! As for the suggested recipes, I decided to try the Beef Breakfast Pizza Ole. It was supposed to have eggs on top, but this is how it turned out:
Read the Beef Breakfast Pizza Ole recipe – it is so easy to make. My only issue was that something ran down into my oven and caused lots of smoke. Maybe it was egg, maybe it was cheese or grease from the hamburger meat. But it sure made my kids laugh and created some good memories. Even without the eggs, this pizza was delicious.
Your turn! Go to My Plate My Way and tell me what kind of cook does it say YOU are?
I received a gift card to help me buy ingredients to make this pizza. All opinions are 100% my own.
