PORTLAND, Maine, May 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — With Memorial Day weekend approaching, Guiding Stars, a leading nutritional guidance program used by several of the leading East Coast grocers and other organizations across North America, shares its top five recipe recommendations for Memorial Day weekend gatherings, including nutritious spins on summer classics:
“Some consider Memorial Day weekend the unofficial start of summer, and for many of us that means lighting up the barbecue and enjoying the outdoors with family and friends,” said Julie Greene, director of Guiding Stars. “But lighting the grill doesn’t have to mean traditional burgers and hot dogs. These five recipes are a perfect way to welcome summer with bright, nutritious foods that taste great too.”
Easy-to-understand Guiding Stars ratings appear in more than 2,000 supermarkets and hospitality outlets across the country. The three-star rating system is simple: one star for good, two for better, and three stars for the best nutritional value.
The Guiding Stars website also includes hundreds of healthy, easy, and delicious recipes – and it’s searchable by category. Whether you’re looking for appetizers and snacks, kid-friendly meals, ways to use up leftovers, or tasty desserts, it’s easy to make more nutritious choices. All recipes have been evaluated to make cooking a nutritious dinner at home as easy as buying nutritious food at the store or online using Guiding Stars.
