Abstract: In our culture sharing is an important part of tradition. Food is shared during important events like birthdays, anniversaries or retirement and to say a final
farewell to loved ones. Our Sunday to’onai is perhaps the most important meal of the week, a time we gather together as a family after church to enjoy our
favorite foods. With all of these events we have to balance the fact we have plenty of food with our growing awareness of the relationship between diet and health. It may seem that we are asked to choose EITHER good food OR good health. This booklet is designed to show how you can enjoy good food AND good health. One section shows how we can make healthier choices for our traditional to’onai. Before the sections on Food Groups is a short section explaining how you can use the information in the booklet. Each recipe shows how the food was prepared, and suggestions for making the
recipe healthier. The nutritional analysis uses the same layout as nutrition labels on store bought food.
