As we move boldly into March, Happy “Avena Sativa”! For us less scientifically inclined, “avena sativa” is Oats; that is the grain that matters most this month. Packed with B vitamins and magnesium, oats are one of the best grains for you. March is jam packed (no pun intended) with food filled opportunities. It is also National Nutrition Month! This entire month is dedicated to the promotion of good nutrition, sound eating and physical activity habits. Braised Middle Eastern Lamb is the Food Focus “Hot Pot Sandwich” this month; providing both a healthy and cultural inspiration. Let your inner creativity go for an international food adventure.
