"The Big Game" Plan for Healthy Eating

Develop a winning Big Bowl "food game plan" by thinking like a football player on the playing field. Only, instead of the opposing team, your field is filled with food and refreshments. Here are eight winning strategies:

 

Have a Game Plan

Plan a successful defense against food that is excessive in fat and calories:

  • Equip yourself — include some lower-calorie drinks and munchies.
  • Position yourself away from heaping platters.
  • Go in knowing what you will eat. For example, choose to have the three choices you will enjoy the most. You don't have to eat some of everything just because it's there.
  • Bring a healthier dip or appetizer to the football party.

Size up the Opponent

  • Look at the stats on different foods. Check for a Nutrition Label that tells how many calories per serving.
  • Eat food from a plate versus directly from a bag or box so you're not blindsided by the amount you're consuming.

Get in Condition

  • Exercise at least twice a week and take walks. The sooner you start, the greater the benefits. Physical activity and added muscle boost your metabolism and burn calories.

Watch What You Eat Before the Game

  • Resist overloading on calories before the game. Keep a few calories in reserve so you can enjoy goodies later without guilt.

Avoid Penalties

  • Avoid later weight penalties from too many calories by choosing smaller portions.
  • Don’t let anyone get a penalty for drinking and driving. Remind your guests to have a designated driver and offer alcohol-free beverages.

Keep Yourself in the Game

Don't get taken out of the game because of food poisoning:

  • Follow the "two-hour rule." Leaving perishable food at room temperature more than two hours is a big mistake. When food sits out for more than two hours, bacteria can easily multiply and cause foodborne illness. Set out small amounts of perishable foods and replace those with clean plates of food within two hours.
  • Or, keep hot foods hot (140°F or hotter) with chafing dishes, slow cookers, and warming trays. Cold foods should be held at 40°F or colder. Keep foods cold by nesting dishes in bowls of ice or using party trays filled with ice.

Keep Advancing Toward the Goal Line

  • Pace yourself by alternating between higher and lower calorie foods.
  • Make a successful passing play by bypassing seconds at the buffet table or take half as much the second time around.
  • Take an occasional time-out to put a halt in your eating.

Touchdown!

  • Plan an effective running (or walking) conditioning strategy. Bypass excessive food intakes and avoid penalties which keep you from moving toward the goal line, and you will score a successful Big Bowl "Game Plan for Healthy Eating."

Healthy and Safe Meals Using a Slow Cooker

Americans' busy lifestyles often show up in their cooking and eating habits. More than 54% of food dollars are spent on food away from home, which is typically higher in calories and fat and lower in calcium, fiber, and iron. When families eat together, meals are likely to be more nutritious. Family meals also provide a great time for children and parents to reconnect. One way to increase meals at home is to use a slow cooker. Check out the following information on slow cooker benefits, food safety, and recipe ideas.

Slow cooker benefits. They use less electricity than an oven and can be used year-round. Because of the long, low-temperature cooking, slow cookers help tenderize less-expensive cuts of meat. They usually allow for one-step preparation; putting all the ingredients in the slow cooker saves time and reduces cleanup. A variety of foods can be cooked in a slow cooker, including soups, stews, side dishes, main dishes, meats, poultry, and desserts.

Know your slow cooker. Most slow cookers have 2-3 settings. Food typically cooks in 6-10 hours on the low setting and 4-6 hours on the high setting. If possible, turn the slow cooker on the high setting for the first hour of cooking time and then use the setting that fits your needs. Read your slow cooker instruction manual and follow manufacturers' directions. Slow cookers are available in different sizes, so instructions will vary.

Slow cookers and food safety. Begin with a clean cooker, utensils and work area. Keep perishable foods refrigerated until preparation time. Store cut-up meat and vegetables separately in the fridge. Always thaw meat or poultry before putting it into a slow cooker. Vegetables cook slower than meat and poultry, so if using them, put vegetables in first. Then add meat and liquid suggested in the recipe, such as broth, water or sauce. Keep the lid in place, removing only to stir the food or check for doneness.

Safely handle leftovers. Do not store leftovers in a deep container, such as the slow cooker. Store leftovers in shallow covered containers and refrigerate within 2 hours after cooking is completed. Reheating leftovers in a slow cooker is not recommended. Cooked food should be reheated on the stove, in a microwave, or in a conventional oven until it reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit (F).

Recipe conversions. Most recipes can be converted. Because liquids do not boil away in a slow cooker, you can usually reduce liquids by one-third to one-half. This reduction in liquid does not apply to soups. Pasta may become mushy if added too early, so it could be added at the end of the cooking process or cooked separately and added just before serving. Milk, cheese and cream may be added one hour before serving. For more information: UNL Food Calendar.

Recipe – Crockpot Vegetable Beef Soup (Source-Eating on a Dime)

Ingredients: 2 pounds ground beef (browned and drained), ½ medium onion (diced), 3 potatoes (peeled and diced into 1” pieces), 16 oz frozen mixed vegetables, 3 cans diced tomatoes (14.5 oz cans), 4 cups beef broth, 2 tsp Italian Seasoning, 1 tsp salt, ½ tsp pepper

Directions: Place all ingredients in a 6-quart crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours. Serve hot and enjoy!

Purdue Extension and University of Illinois Extension to host Bi-State Garden Conference

Purdue University Extension and University of Illinois Extension are collaborating to offer the annual Bi-State Garden Conference, being held at The Beef House Restaurant at 16501 Indiana State Road 63, Covington, Indiana, on Tuesday, January 25th. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. ET with the conference starting at 6:00 p.m. ET.

  • “Invasive Insects on the Horizon in 2022: What to Watch For and How to Handle Them” by Elizabeth Barnes, Purdue University, discussing what invasive insects might be impacting our environment in the near future.
  • “Introduction to Rainscaping Education” by Kara Salazar, Purdue University, will discuss what it is, why you might want to incorporate it into your property, and other basic facts about rainscaping.

The conference includes a Beef House dinner and concludes at approximately 9:00 p.m. ET. The registration fee is $50 (includes dinner) and is payable online. Educational credits for Indiana/Illinois Agriculture Teachers have been approved for no additional fee.

4-H Online Enrollment Encouraged by 1/15

Indiana online 4-H enrollment opens for a new program year annually on October 1 and remains open nearly year around until early the following September. It is to everyone’s advantage to enroll in 4-H by January 15 so that one has the most opportunity and don’t miss out on any information. While enrollment is really open more or less year around, it becomes more challenging to receive communications and be informed of the 4-H program with later enrollment. The registration is done once again via typing v2.4honline.com in your internet browser and the fee is again $25 for 4-H. This year second graders may also enroll in mini 4-H online using this website as well and the fee is $10. If financial limitations are barriers for either program, please contact the office at 653-8411 to talk with Mark to arrange for payment assistance. Moreover, for those previously enrolled, you will find the info already rolled over to quickly edit and accept personal information from last year’s enrollment.

4-H is a premier source of enjoyable, educational programs to help youth reach their full potential. There are many pathways to participate in 4-H. Too many limit 4-H to only being the fair or just exhibiting a project at the fair. Putnam County has nearly 75 activities where one may participate. A project simply references a topic that one wants to study or complete associated activities and ultimately show off publicly what was learned through accomplishment. This may be via an exhibit at the county fair or even another venue besides the fair. Every project can be associated with a life skill and/or a career. A common misconception is that one must live on a farm or have animals to be in 4-H. That is certainly not true. One can actually experience 4-H without taking any projects by participating in 4-H career development events, camp, Junior Leaders and workshops.

Indiana 4-H is the state’s largest youth development program for grades 3-12, reaching over 200,000 youth in all 92 counties. 4-H Youth Development Educators in each Purdue Extension county office coordinate local activities.

In Putnam County, approved adult volunteers teach young people specific skills related to a wide variety of subjects through hands-on, experiential learning. Youth also develop leadership and citizenship skills by participating in one or more of Putnam County’s thirty plus organized 4-H Clubs. Subjects include: science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM); agriculture; citizenship; healthy living; art; consumer and family sciences; and more. In 2013, a Tufts University study showed that 4-H members also excel in positive youth development areas compared to peers, including:

  • Four times more likely to contribute to their communities (grades 7-12)
  • Two times more likely to make healthier choices (grade 7)
  • Two times more likely to be civically active (grades 8-12)
  • Two times more likely to participate in extracurricular STEM programs (grades 10-12)

 

If you have questions about the 4-H program, the Purdue Extension Putnam County office located at the street address of 152 East Columbia Street is available to help. Archery, dog and horse & pony projects will close on or shortly after January 15 so leaders may continue to progress through activities due to the building of content in the activities.

Extension staff have conducted school visits to all grade three classrooms in the county and plan to visit grade two classrooms soon to conduct school visits with handouts sent home that parents and youth may review. The Purdue Extension homepage has links to enroll in 4-H as well.
