changing up the weekly menu in your home

How often do you change up the food that you serve to your family? Our family consistently had spaghetti on Mondays, tacos on Tuesdays, and the list goes on. I felt that it was easier for my family to know what to expect for dinner each night and it made shopping so much easier for me. What I didn't realize is that limiting the kinds of foods that I served my family was impacting their enjoyment of dinner. I decided to get a good cookbook and start trying new recipes. My blog can provide you with a ton of specialty food ideas for your family.

Get Back To Your Roots With A Trip To An African Food Store

Are you tired of eating the same rotation of meals every week or always eating out at the same set of restaurants each month? Do you want to add something a bit more exciting or eclectic to your family's diet? Perhaps it's time to turn to your roots or background and find a specialty food store that offers dishes or ingredients that remind you of your family's heritage. Here are some of the benefits you and your family stand to gain by seeking out an African-style store or any other shop or grocery with the food of your choice.

It Just Feels Good to Eat Food That Reminds You of Home

Maybe you grew up in a different country where this kind of food was on the table every night. Maybe you never lived in another country, but you had parents or grandparents who would share old recipes from their youth. Being able to eat some of the same cultural foods you ate or at least heard about earlier in life can tap into a sense of nostalgia that will have you savoring every bite. Food can make for some great comfort food because of the memories it can invoke.

Food is a Great Way to Pass on Your Family's Culture to the Next Generation

Perhaps you have offspring of your own now and would like to pass on your appreciation for your family's heritage to your children. Having a cultural food night once a week or even once a month can help remind everyone in the family of your background and perhaps serve as a source of pride as you eat especially delicious dishes that are your own little secret. Your neighbors eating another large pizza across the street don't know what they are missing.

African Food May Offer Healthier Choices Than Your Typical American Grub

Speaking of pizza, you may find that some African style or other specialty food stores can provide an opportunity to each much healthier than the standard American fare. If you are thinking about making yet another run for fast food tonight, why not take a detour and see what a specialty store can rustle up for you and your stomach. It's possible you'll find something high on nutrients and low on calories that could become a healthy staple in your family's dinner plans for years to come.

Find a local African-style store near you and take a look at what you can place on the dinner table this evening.
