Traditional Cultural Recipes
with a Healthy Twist

These recipes were modified to be lower in fat, cholesterol, saturated fat, salt, and added sugar. These recipes represent the traditional foods of various cultural groups.


These traditional cultural recipes were changed to limit the fat, salt, and sugar content. Each recipe has the percentages for 1 serving listed under % daily value (% DV). These numbers tell you the Percent Daily Value (DV) that one serving of this food provides as a percentage of established standards. Nutrition experts recommend limiting total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium in your diet, so choose foods with a lower Percent DV for these nutrients. Dietary fiber is recommended at 25 grams per day. The effort was to show the amount of dietary fiber in these traditional cultural recipes.
