Meatless Monday is taking you back to grandma’s kitchen. Goulash was a staple growing
up that my kids love now. This is a great meal that combines MyPlate into one big
bowl that takes less than 20 minutes to complete!
Choosing whole grain elbow noodles is a great way to get the fiber, vitamin and minerals
needed for good health. Although refined grains are usually “enriched” after processing
with some vitamins and minerals, the fiber a grain has when whole is not replaced.
Everyone needs at least 3-8 oz of grains a day (depending on age, sex, and level of
activity) and at least half of those should be whole.
Growing up Grandma’s goulash always just had whatever extra veggies were laying around.
It can still be just as versatile! Whether they are fresh from the garden, canned,
or frozen whatever vegetables you like can be put in this dish. MyPlate categorizes
vegetables into five categories: dark-green vegetables, red & orange vegetables, beans
& peas, starchy vegetables, and other vegetables. Everyone should get 1-3 cups of
a variety of these vegetable groups daily (depending on age, sex, and level of activity).
This meal is also an excellent way to hide those pesky veggies for our pickier eaters.
Pro tip: chop the veggies into smaller bites to make the more “hidden”.
We know how glorious beans are for their versatility, nutrients, and budget-friendly
cost. This meal is just another great example of how to use them! Any flavor can be
used to replace the meat in this meal. A person needs between 2 and 6 ½ oz of protein
each day (depending on age, sex, and level of activity).
