I’m excited about sharing this broccoli and potato hash recipe. You can add it to your meal prep repertoire for breakfast or quickly whip it up for a midweek dinner. It’s made with fresh produce and provides a hearty serving of fiber and many micronutrients that make our bodies run smoothly.
Before we get into the actual recipe, I want to quickly talk about what it takes to incorporate healthy eating into your lifestyle. Knowing and understanding what makes a healthy meal are crucial to healthy eating; many people who can maintain a healthy diet have a basic understanding of nutrition (or at least what works for them). However, many times we do not talk about one other important factor. That is, access to high-quality food. Understanding nutrition but not having access to wholesome food is useless.
Access can be in the form of having the resources to grow your own food or being able to shop at supermarkets that have fresh produce that your family can afford. I have never had an issue with accessing healthy food. Growing up my family lived very near a great supermarket and fish market; my dad used our backyard for growing various produce like lettuce, cabbage, pigeon peas, corn and chives. When I left Trinidad, I moved to upper Manhattan where it was very easy for me to buy fresh produce.
Every once in awhile I visit a different city or just another part of New York and I am reminded of my food access privilege. Fresh produce is not always easily accessible or affordable. So I was very happy to learn that Walmart is committed to offering a broad assortment of fresh locally grown produce. When the world’s largest brick-and-mortar retailer, with over 11,000 stores says it is supporting local farmers the consumer will benefit from having high-quality produce.
Let’s get cooking. All the produce I used in this recipe was provided by and is available at Walmart stores. I was able to incorporate a wide range of colors which can be an indicator of micronutrient variety. Try this recipe and let me know what you think and be sure to check out your nearest Walmart for high-quality organic produce.
