I don’t know about you but I am trying to provide my family with healthier meals, snacks, and overall lifestyle. I’m always learning new information that both scares and informs me to make better decisions – and I pass that information on to you!
Set a Healthier Table Challenge
Mazola Corn Oil is setting out a challenge for America to “Set a Healthier Table” for their family this Summer. You can pledge for your family on the Mazola Facebook page. While there, you will find Herb Mesa’s recipes to help you Set a Healthier Table as well as information on how Mazola Corn Oil offers 4x more cholesterol-blocking plant sterols than olive oil! Plus, you’ll find tips from the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease for your family.
I was surprised to hear the stat about olive oil, I thought olive oil was the best choice every time. Research shows plant sterols found in corn oil can significantly reduce your body’s cholesterol absorption. Mazola Corn Oil has 40 percent more sterols than canola oil and 4 x in olive oil.
To start my family’s challenge to use Mazola with my Healthier Table Challenge, Mazola gave us a gift set with Mazola, a five-piece bamboo cutting board set and a silicone tongs set that is safe up to 500° F. We’ll be giving the same gift set away with the contest below!
For dinner tonight, I sauteed vegetables in a little Mazola Corn Oil.
For a snack, we made cheese quesadillas with a little Mazola Corn Oil in the skillet.
The Mazola cutting board is the perfect size, with 5 sleeves for your chopping needs for beef, fish, vegetables, and more. I have never had a cutting board with a sleeve for each food type. This is perfect to prevent cross-contamination!
If you are looking for healthy recipe inspiration, check out the heart-healthy recipes on the Mazola Corn Oil website. I plan on adding a few recipes to my menu next week including the Fiesta Black Bean, Corn and Pepper Salad and the Blue Corn Pancakes with Black Bean Mousse and Lime Sour Cream. I enjoy trying new recipes, thankfully so does my family! I hope you learned something about Mazola Corn Oil with this post and will take the Set a Healthier Table Challenge.
