Expert Tips

“I always keep fruit around, an apple in my purse, an orange on my desk. That way, if I am hungry, I am sure to eat something good for me. My kids like this dinner; they are up for trying something new.” Nanci D.

If you are not familiar with kasha, look for it in the rice and grain section of your supermarket; it may be labeled “roasted buckwheat groats.” These roasted kernels have a distinctive nutty flavor that blends deliciously with the ground beef and tomatoes in this skillet meal.
