Each month, NBFA Chef and Food Service Supervisor Todd Daigle will provide healthy tips on the recipe to give more options for taste or dietary restrictions. 

  • Want to add Sweetness? Substitute craisins for raisins. 
  • Nut-Free Alternative Substitute sunflower seeds for walnuts to still provide a nutty flavor.
