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 magnesium, an essential mineral found in many foods, including those in the WIC food packages. Its resume includes playing a role in bone health, the immune system, and potentially making some health conditions less severe - getting enough magnesium each day, along with potassium, calcium, fiber, and protein, can benefit women who suffer from high blood pressure before, during and after pregnancy.
We've gathered contributions from the WIC community that we've added to our collection, or linked to, to help you help your participants make the most of their food packages and try new recipes with magnificent magnesium.
Luckily, lots of WIC foods contain magnesium. Legumes, like black, pinto and garbanzo beans, peanut butter, edamame, leafy greens, potatoes, bananas, and yogurt all contain magnesium.
Go nutty for peanut butter with Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt or Apple Sandwiches for a magnifying magnesium treat.
