Healthy Foods and Beverages To Keep Your Brain At Its Best

Feed Your Family Like Warriors with Healthy Fall Favorites from Award-Winning Army Chef

 

 

 

With Fall comes planning for new meals, and who better to whip up some new healthy ideas than a Chef that feeds an Army – literally! You may be surprised to learn that families who mostly cook at home can learn a thing or two about healthy eating from – Army Chefs!

 

Feeding an Army of hungry Soldiers requires serious planning; but keeping meals tasty and healthy takes a whole new level of talent, creativity, and skill.

 

Thankfully, U.S. Army chefs are a group of gifted culinary specialists following their passion for the culinary arts, while serving their country and providing fellow Soldiers with the proper food and nutrition they need to fuel their bodies and minds, optimize energy, and perform at their best.

The nutritious food Army chefs dish out to Soldiers is driven by the Army’s “Go For Green” program that labels food either green (fresh produce, whole grains, lean fish), yellow (seafood, red meat, pasta), or red (desserts, fried foods, cheeses) to make it easy for Soldiers to find high-performance foods and drinks that boost their fitness, strength, and health.

 

While the Army’s dining facilities may remind the average person of traditional cafeterias, menus are anything but standard cafeteria fare. The Army’s culinary specialists offer a savory and tasty dining experience with the familiar taste of home, boosting the morale of Soldiers around the world.

 

As the weather cools down, award-winning Army chef and Staff Sergeant (SSG) Samantha Poe is dishing up delectable fall favorites, including a delicious and healthy beet cake full of essential vitamins that can help with blood pressure and athletic performance, which helped lead the U.S. Army Culinary Arts Team to a silver medal at the 2020 World Culinary Olympics in Stuttgart, Germany. SSG Poe was also named the American Culinary Federation (ACF) Pastry Chef of the Year in 2019.

 

 

SSG Poe joined me to share her healthy fall recipes with the American public, discuss how the “Go for Green” program provides for the well-being of Army Soldiers, along with great ideas for families who are looking to bring healthy, tasty options to the table this season – for football games, family dinners, and beyond.
