( - If you know me, you know I am not a fan of the latest ‘diet' trend or touted superfood. Spinach, broccoli, blueberries - the familiar are all still nutrition powerhouses, but you have to have a balance of ALL nutrients. Some new (or new-to-you) food trends may just have staying power, and for good reason as their benefits stack up to their health claims deserving a spot in your menu! With March as National Nutrition Month why not branch out and try something new. Don't let these new ingredients intimidate you - here are some easy ways to incorporate them into your menu.

KaleChunky Corn Chowder with Kale and Sweet Potato - Naturally sweet and savory flavors combine for a hearty vegetarian bowl of delicious goodness.

QuinoaFruity Quinoa Salad - Your favorite fruits combined with the zing of red onion and cucumber make a fresh and tasty salad choice.

SalmonSalmon with Dill Dijon Sauce - Easy preparation and gourmet presentation for a fantastic heart-healthy dish.
