Recipes to cook, eat and repeat
WIC Meals of the Month (MOM) is an opportunity for the WIC community to share recipes of their own, or from their favorite resources. This WIC MOM features choline, a nutrient the Dietary Guidelines acknowledge as important at each life stage and highlight the increased needs during pregnancy and lactation to ensure the health of both the mother and the baby.
Our recipe cards feature a number of contributions from Virginia Beach WIC (thanks!) to help you help your participants make the most of their food packages and connect with choline.

Eggs are an excellent source of choline, versatile, and part of the WIC food packages! Recipes can be quick for on-the-go, like Veggie Omelet in a Mug, or for more of a sit-down meal, like Veggie Skillet Eggs and Garden Vegetable Cakes. Plus, since eggs are a part of a number of culture's dietary staples, there's no shortage of recipes, check out these egg recipes from around the world.
Want a vegetarian source? Soybeans are also an excellent source of choline. Toss some in to this Quinoa Salad or Bulgur Chickpea Salad (quinoa and other whole grains also offer up some choline) or use instead of the the chicken in these Sesame Noodles with Broccoli and Chicken (for those who do eat chicken, adding soybeans packs quite the choline punch since chicken is also a source of choline).
Looking for another reason to add more cruciferous veggies to your diet? Look no further - they too offer up some choline. Try the One Pan Roasted Green Veggies (below), Broccoli and Potato Soup, or the Brussels Sprouts, Cranberry and Bulgur Salad.
